I have to agree with Caleb. The average PHRF ratings for the different versions of the Cat 30 vary from 171 to 192. The tall mast helps a lot in low wind areas, and the fin keel will result in better upwind performance. Not the the other versions are bad boats, just that the tall mast fin keel version is the best performer.
