Capri's are built adequate for what they are designed for - a light day sailor & weekender. I wouldn't hesitate to do some coastal crusing picking the days carefully and keeping the weather radio on.
It's got an active class association ( Capri 26 National Association
) and is a good solution for a pocket cruiser.
PS - whether a 155% is overpowering it will depend entirely on the winds in your area. I like a 140 to 135% for lake sailing and winds of 10 to 20 knots.
