Contessas are fairly well regarded as bluewater capable pocket cruisers... The reason Sadlers are probably a bit rare here is that they generally didn't come over from England, since people could buy the Contessas made up in Canada for less money and have the boat come a much shorter distance.

BTW, Contessa 32s are still in limited production in England AFAIK.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
