Re: Racing a C&C 29 MKII

Do you have hank-on or a roller-furling headsail? The latter furled will not point well.

You should get better speeds than that on a close reach; 6.3 is the theoretical hull speed.

I did find the 29 to be quite tender.

Did the main get really flat when you reefed?

How many crew / rail meat did you have?
