While I don't have a Corsair, I have sailed on them a lot. It really depends on what kind of sailing you are looking to do.

If you are wanting to race in the One-Design circuit, then you will want a Corsair F24 or F28. If you want to primarily race and sail short cruises, then the F28 is probably a better choice. However, if you're looking to do a lot of daysailing, cruising and making longer duration trips, I would go with a Telstar 28 or Quorning Dragonfly, neither the F24 or F28 have anything close to resembling standing headroom. You'd need to go up to an F31 to get a reasonable size of accommodation in the cabin IMHO.

I've sent you a bit more detailed info in a PM.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I just want something that is easy to sail and is able to do 20 knots. The F24 that I was on seemed to easy to sail compared to other style boats.

Going 20 Knots under sail is just wrong

Well if yours can then I'm sure mine can too... Actually - your boat rates faster than mine so maybe we would only get to 19 1/2 ...

Obviously, sailing a CS-brand boat leads to delusional behavior...

If I wanted a leadmine like a CS, I would have bought an Alberg 30.. or a Hallberg Rassy...

I think everyone needs a trimaran ! If you have been on one yet then you have not sailed yet. Its all about speed isn't it? See how fast the wind can move you, with the ability to sleep on it and be safe of course...

Sailormann. I think your boat would get 20 knots! In a 50knots of wind going downwind maybe? heheheh
