Re: Interesting Sailboats

I did this schoon er a few years back. It combines a traditional look with a modern hull, and an all carbon rig. It's quite fast and has upset some people in San Francisco's schooner races. It has beaten some much bigger schooners. I think the boat may now be persona non grata at those races. Too bad. It's a kick in the pants to sail, very stiff and powerful, big spade rudder and steers like a dream.
