Bristol 24' Corsair

Hey there,

My wife and I sold our 1975 Sabre 28 MK1 about two seasons job, new house and a change of lifestyle (baby girl) made it impossible to get to the boat as often as we would have liked and so we parted with our old girl. We may be in the market for another in the near future and actually came across a 1977 Bristol 24' in very nice condition. I am more familiar with the 32' but know very little about the 24'.

Just wanted to ask anyone out there (Bristol Owners in particular) what they think of the 24', what their experiences have been with her, how she sails, handles relative seas, things to watch out for and where the 24 might shine! We loved the Sabre, but 28' may be a bit too much boat for us now and we are looking to downsize and simplify a bit so we can sail more and tinker less!

Thanks for any information you might offer us!
