Re: Sailing, safety, & size

Sorry Paulo the only thing worse than my sailing ability is my writing What I was trying to imply is that most of the larger boats in my region motor everywhere. Here the wind is usually under 8 or over 25 if they cant sail in those conditions then a long term voyage is next to impossible. I'm not bashing big boats but supporting that little boats can and do successfully sail safely all over the world safely every day. My boat has a 7400 lb displacement and is considered to be very heavy for the size she is average off the wind in speed but very comfortable. Above the wind she sails like a dream.
