Re: Islander 28 single handed around Cape Horn?

My first keelboat was an Islander 28...Island Majic. I have fond memories of her ans she was one of the best boats to learn on and forgiving. Seemed well made for the time (1976) and had a beautiful interior.

She was an average sailing vessel in terms of performance never in front never in the rear, ( I am comparing now to my 35C&C MKIII) and was good in heavier winds for a boat her size. Narrow upswept transome. I would not be suprtised if she were still around/ Good luck with yours..
