nonsuch 30: weird or wonderful?
I just sailed on one the other night for the first time in a dozen years. My cousin, who owns it, normally races on Etchells and SC 70s, but wanted something his wife would sail on. Because the beam is so wide (and it carries it pretty much the whole way), the boat is remarkably spacious for a 30. Very easy to sail. We were scooting along a 7 kts in about 15 kts of breeze. They seem to have held their value very well over the years, particularly the fresh water boats. Dedicated following.
