25 foot cruising

I had a Coronado 25 on S.F. Bay and the no. Cal coast, and really loved it - 90% of the time. 10% of the time I was trying to get upwind in 20+k, and that boat was simply defeated. One reef put you 50 degrees off the wind; deep reefed you were hard put to just offset the leeway. People have circumnavigated in smaller craft, but they were reaching the whole trip. If you are trying to make specific destinations, and return home, you will be very frustrated by a boat that can''t beat into 25 K+ and the waves that go with it.
