I race around the cans and usually one extended regatta every year. We sail with crew but a short handed boat is really tempting since it can save you from considerable logistics issue. Last year i crewed on a SWAN 45 which had 12 crew, and it was a pain in the*** for the skipper to coordinate.
I like elan 350, however i did not understand the rational behind the placement of the mainsheet track.
