S2 8.0

Heard these were pretty slow on the start and sloggish down wind, which doesn't leave alot, but has anyone any personal experience with the boat? I'm looking for a weekend to 2 week cruiser, sailing in the NC coastal area. All opinions welcome.

Fair winds.

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 don't necessarily agree with that assesment. I think overall they sail well and I have an awful lot of fun in mine, but I don't like mine in light air. I'm not sure if it is me or the boat that is the real issue there. I have never done any cruising, only day sailing so I may not be the best person to ask about that. Should be fine for weekending, but for a 2 week cruise??? It could be done for sure, but with an 8ft beam its a little tight for some folks.

I agree. I've had my s2 8.0 for a couple of years. After owning several other boats, I couldn't be happier with the quality, performance, and comfort of it.
