I haven't been underway on one, but my understanding is that they go well to windward, and will take a beating.

As is my nature, I erred on the side of "performance" vs. "comfort", which may not suit your purposes.

I have sailed the D-40E however. Double-handed in fact. Gorgeous and very comfy down below. Easy to double-hand, excellent upwind performance, rides like a Cadillac. Mmmmmmmmmm...
