Re: San Juan 28 - Sailing Qualities?

One of these raced quite successfully on the local level in the 80s/90s, it's going to be a bit typical of the IOR influenced designs of the day.

Whether or not to take a test sail ..... well, I doubt many sales fall through based on the sea trial unless it's a real one-off oddball or the trial turns up a mechanical/structural issue. But I'd sure like to have sailed it before plunking down any serious cash....
