wondering if anyone has any comments on the S&S 39, particularly it's upwind performance. This design is also known as S&S No 2069 and it is an early 1970's design. I believe it effectively is a big brother to the S&S 34, which was designed around the same time.
Some further info on this design is below. Other details include
Length 38.7 ft
Sail area 692 sq ft
Displacem 8,530kg (18,800lbs)
