Re: Is she bluewater? Interesting story to help with these questions.

Catalina’s race to Hawaii on a regular basis. In fact, a C309 did the Single Handed Transpac in 2010 and he sailed it back! (This was the year Ronnie Simpson lost his keel on his “bluewater” racer). Catalina’s are represented pretty much in every Pac Cup race and more than a few C34’s have either raced or cruised to Hawaii (another one is leaving this summer). Probably why people don’t hear about this is it is pretty common and for the most part uneventful. Like Cruising Dad said, the boats under 40’ suffer from small tankage and storage capacities which limits their cruising range.
