Long Island Sound first boat insights?
New to SailNet. I took up sailing 3 summers ago. Took lessons, then began crewing on a J24, racing almost every week over the summer/fall on Long Island Sound. Member City Island Yacht Club
Looking for a first boat, under 30' but over 24". Comfortable cruiser with speed. Mostly daysailing and an occasional overnight or weekend trip for 4. Not more than 6aboard for a daytrip or single handed afternoons.
Any suggestions and/or insights would be helpful. Any Long Island sailboat owners who can tell me about choices made for 1st boats and why?
Would rather spend a few dollars extra to get a better boat now as I plan on sailing her for a while.
