Re: Cal 27 vs Albin Vega

Are you planning on single handing or will you have crew? The Vega will get crowded fast with more than 2, while the Cal can probably handle 3-4 for short periods.

If you're looking for a voice of experience, you might consider contacting Katie and Jessie who have sailed their Cal 2-27 from the Great Lakes to the Bahamas, basically learning along the way.

For practical Vega experience, try Chuck from Cruising Lealea. That little Vega has made some serious miles in the Pacific. I think Chuck is a S/N member too...Vega1860 username?
