I love my Alberg 22. It is a very seaworthy design and actually has a good turn of speed. I singlehanded it up the Mobjack this week when the wind was 15-20kts from the NE. The bay had kicked up some step 3-5 foot waves and the Alberg had no trouble going to windward just a little shy of 5kts in those conditions. I'd have like to had a reef in the main to lighten the weather helm, but otherwise it was a fantastic sail. Coming home in the same conditions I reached/surfed down those waves at 7kts. The accomodations are a little cramped for my 6'4" frame, but it's luxurious compared to backpacking. I can't say enough good things about this fun, simple boat.
