Cape Dory 30 - How slow is "slow?"

Think about getting an asymmetrical spinnaker for light wind help. If you get a sock with it, it's really not hard to rig and fly and it makes a noticeable difference. Overall, really light winds will be frustrating, but that's why we also have a motor. Personally I think going with a boat that is visually appealing is a pretty key selection criteria for casual cruisers.
