Shawmac,
Welcome to Sailnet. I don't race my CS27 but others may chip in. You may wish to pose your question in the "Racing" or "Buying a Boat" forums. The CS27 pictured above has a PHRF of 198 for Lake Ontario. It moves along quite well and with the deep keel it points better than average also. It is heavily built (overbuilt?) and I'm sure lighter boats would go faster. On a long run from Port Elgin to Tobermory Ontario, we arrived about 30 - 45 min ahead of an Aloha 26, another shoal draft CS27 and a C&C 30. Some sailing and some motorsailing. Clearly my superior sailing skills made all the difference . When you're cruising, it's never a race... unless you are ahead.
