Re: hunter 212 vs. US 21 vs. First 235 vs. MacGregor 26s

, are the facts.....I purchased a 1989 Macgregor 26d for the sole intent on racing the boat.....David and Edwin Baxter of Baxter sailmakers of Norfolk Va. joined me in this quest.....They built 4 headsails....all mylar 155 down to a blade.....a spinnaker and a fully batten main.....the bottom of the boat was slick and a few other go fast items were put on the boat......anyway the boat was unbeatable.....even without the gift phrf rating of 216 it plain ran away from everything boat for boat.....and in light air we walked away from anything .......Last competitive race was in Elizabeth City....light air....some of out victims were a pair of Melges 24, a Tartan pride 27, , a J 27, a Farr 38, a Shock 35, and a bunch of other hot boats......we finished way ahead of all of these boats.....Up north that year we took overall 1st place in the Chesapeake Atlantic 3 years in a row.....two years we took line honors......over a lot of big boats that were raced very well.....this is all fact. The trophys are on display in Va beach at the lifesaving musieum......
