Thank you all very much for the information. It is quite helpful.
However, the original intent of this post was to seek information about online forums (and other resources) dealing with Single-handed sailing
. I sidetracked the topic by asking the first two responders about boats.
So, please let me know if you know of any good single-handed sailing forums and/or other resources. If anyone would like to contact me directly, my email address is: < firstname.lastname@example.org
I have another post in the "Boat Review and Purchase Forum" that asks about boats that are suitable for single-handed sailing. The post's title is: "Faster than a Cal 20". I would be very happy to hear more suggestions about them.
