But seriously, how do you like the Capri?I saw one couple of years ago at the boat show and fell in love. Was thinking of buying one and campaigning her in the Bay to go against the Tuna boats and Wabbits. How many Capris are in Richmond's program? Do you plan on learning to use the spinnaker?[/QUOTE]
You're not that lucky, I do plan to spend time down there, quite a bit actually.
So far I love the Capri, it's a sturdy and agile little boat. I was actually looking at buying one (~$5,000) but decided that I needed a bigger boat for the family. Wife can't stand the thought of staying home on weekends the whole summer. As such, I'd like to move up to a 28-32 ft boat sooner then later. Hence the "all out" practice plan on these 22s.
Tradewinds has 7 Capri 22s, decently setup at $160/day or per month depending which plan you choose. I think learning to Kite on these boats would be cool. I'll have to ask and see if they allow it. I haven't seen any classes teaching it though.
