I was at the lake the other day when a big wind thunderstorm blew in. I dove off a friends fin keel Bene to help my nephew up right the 17' Hobbie Cat. As the other boats beat cheeks for the marina, we up righted the cat, adjusted sail and flew around the lake, what a ride. This is what I do when I want ‘speed and sail....simultaneously’.
Now cruising belongs to my HC33, very similar to the WestSail 32, which I think is a hell of a boat. They may not beat the Clorox bottles
and “Hobbie’s for that matter” to the #4 buoy and back, but then again they are not designed to. Seakindly and safe passage makers that won’t spill many drinks or shake the paint off the top of the mast in harbor. Thumbs up on the WestSail. Just have a good survey done. IMHO
