I seem to remember reading that an IP37 won the Newport to Bermuda race one year.

I believe that it won the Marion-Bermuda race for cruising boats on corrected time by bringing in the breeze from astern on a becalmed fleet.

IPs are slow and not very efficient sailors, my wife wanted one more than anything because of the lay out, comfort and space below. I was tempted by the quality of construction and the positive attitudes of IP owners. We chartered one (a 38) for a week in Charlotte harbour and bought a Caliber which we have now owned for 3 years, it is like an IP that can sail.
Good luck, GB

If you are still looking check out <http://web.novaone.net/TexasSailor/ the Caliber featured is similar to an IP with a little less room below but it sails much better. Gerard

I did not realize that this BB automatically deletes e-mail adresses so let''s try this...
If you are still looking into an IP type boat in that size range, I know of a good one in Texas. Call me at 281 358 3858 or 281 455 3250. Gerard

Any 420 owners out there? Thinking of buying a new 420 in the next couple of months. Is there anything you wish you`d known before you did that? Is lack of speed an issue?
thanks
