My life long dream of owning a Cape Dory has been realized with a CD25. A CD30 would be a taste of heaven. Slow in light air? yes with a jib, but with my 180, and it is an entirely different ball game. One benefit is a strong Cape Dory Owners Assn: The Cape Dory Board • Index page
Close your eyes and grab the boat.
Get a 150, and a 180 or 220, and you will be a very proud and happy sailor with the Chesapeake Cape Dory fleet.
