I suspect that the boat would be up to what you want to do - I can't get over the boat's aesthetics though. Most C&C boats are reasonably attractive but this one did not work for me. A few weeks ago I published a list of boat's signing up for the 2011 Pacific Puddle Jump (and the 2010). There was an enormous range of boats with little duplication. The C&C, equipped properly should be fine.
Finished the circumnavigation in early February in Grenada. Have to work on a book project for the next several months so the boat will be waiting for next year.
