Catalina 27 or Pearson 28 or Ericson 32

I've spent a decade sailing/racing my Catalina 22. It's time to move to something bigger.

I'm looking at the following boats that are in my price range:
1976 Catalina 27
1977 Pearson 28-1
1970 Ericson 32

All three boats have Atomic 4's.

I sail in the Western Basin of Lake Erie where the water can get a little thin at times.

Wife and I will be switching from racing/day sailing to more cruising/racing. I'd still like to compete in several regattas per year. We'll probably take a couple long weekend cruises per year. More after we retire in the next five years.

Would appreciate any insight and advice.
