I sailed a banshee when i was a teen then stopped sailing at 18 only to start again last year at 44. I have been sailing a Rebel 16 and a banshee. truthfully I have been sailing the banshee way more than the Rebel.
I came across a Macgregor 22 that is in pristine shape, it is from the 1970s, and has a 150 jib that has the self winding feathure that would allow to sail with the jib partially rolled or fully extended. I am considering trading my rebel for it as the price is really low. I know the mac gets a bad rap, but I am thinking of buying it as a stepping stone. I am not really sure if I will enjoy a large boat so I am figuring this would be a good way to try one out without much financial risk.
Does this sound okay? Will the mac sail okay?
