ODay 27 for $500? Decent boat?

Hi everyone -
I was looking for something in the 25-30 foot range, mostly for daysailing, single handing around Boston area, and maybe a few three day weekend cruises to the Cape.

I found this ODay 27 for $500. (please see the link - but please note, it has ALREADY SOLD, yesterday actually).

Any opinions on Oday? On Oday 27s? I'm not looking for a blue water cruiser (yet), just something to sail on weekends - the longest cruise might be 60 miles to the Cape (which would put me at most 30 miles from landfall at any time).
How is Oday's reputation, as a builder? As a sailer? Any chance I could try to race (not to win, but just for the thrill) an Oday 27 and not always place last?

Thanks!
