Older Bristol Boats

Hate to say it, but if you want performance, the Bristol 35.5 CB seems to be one of the few with any. A while back, we shocked a Bristol 40 owner by passing him to leeward in our 36'' boat under sail alone while he powersailed at full throttle and full sail on an upwind course. Pretty boats, but slow.
