And that is why we will remain cruisers forever-Too much competitiveness takes the fun out of everything. Saw two Pearson 26s collide at Chelsea Yacht Club, lo, many moons ago, turned one into a Pearson 23. I was crewing aboard an Ensign at the time. Yes, two boats on the same tack are racing, can't help it, but it is a nice way to try to hone one's skills and see how others do it.
