Sail well in relation to what?
Ive sailed on a 25 of that era and my thoughts were it didnt point very well and had a horrible deck plan.I definetly wouldnt want to be caught in a storm in this boat.
However, it is a boat and will get you out on the water so it isnt all bad.
The newer tanzers are much better boats and they still are no match for other boats in that price range.
