Re: Sailing characteristics ?

Yes, the Hunters I sail also don't do well under 5 kts. 7 or so would give me 3-4kts on the 33, and for whatever reason, 5 on the 36. Under 5kts, I would gaze at the CS's and C&C's passing by. The all had bigger genny's though, and the Hunter's had tiny jibs, so that could be part of it I suppose.

Around here, 8 knts wind is about average in the summer, with lots of days in the 10 - 15 range and maybe 10% in the 20 + range. So, all in all, I seemed to be going just as fast and having just as much fun as everyone else, save for the days of less than 5kts.
