Texas to Central Am/Caribbean

I''m not familar with the 30 but a friend has a 324 and its a nightmare to sail in a stiff breese or gusting conditions. It wants to round up much to easily and unpredictibaly, with total loss of control. you seem to have to really reduce sail area early on this boat. you can minimise this if you have someone on the main constantly, which is fine if your racing and have a mainsail trimmer thats able to read the puffs well and early.
