Re: Why the Bristol 32 backs so poorly

And all this time I thought it was just me, 38 years on this boat. I have also been in the same yard and in the last few years they have brought in a sailing teaching school and I see them practicing backing up long distances and am in awe. My dream is to retire on a 40+' with a bow thruster. That is my idea of heaven.
