question for those who know how to sail
If sailing a small boat on an average day with winds in the 10-15 mph range you are: going to get wet: going to feel like you are really going fast and sailing right on the edge: Be able to manuver easily in tight quarters: Be able to get underway at the drop of a hat, and be able to beach the boat on your return to shore......In a larger boat in the same conditions you are: going to be dry: Going to be sailing in ideal conditions and enjoying a comfortable ride(based on the design of the boat): Be able to take more clothing and equipment along in case of a change in weather or if you decide to go on an overnite cruise.: Will need to moor the boat, or expect to take a great deal longer to get underway if launching from a trailer....
