Re: Blue Jacket 40 (new racer/cruiser)

It just dawned on me also tha Brian you may be talking about straight line speed. That by itself doesnt make a boat a performance cruiser or racer cruiser. Angle of attack to windward makes a diffeence also.

I have never seen a Hunter, Catalina, or even most modern Benes point near as close to the wind as the Farrs, Sabres, C&Cs J's or even the older Persons for that matter. Maybe thats another reason people generally dont race with them.
