Just getting one

I am taking delivery of a 1982 C & C 34 this Tues. ( which really means I have to go and get it) I will keep updating on how we get on. Maybe Alymat raced against this boat in Vancouver BC? The name is Excelsior 111.

Subsolent,

Congrats on the buy! I am sure you are going to be very happy. A friend has a C&C 34 roughly the same year as yours and is very happy with it!

Where are you located? Where was the boat kept?

Cheers,

My C&C 34

My boat is Legacy, formerly Illusion kept for four years by previous owner at Tahoe. He purchased in Southern California and had it professionally maintained. Excellent condition. I keep Legacy at Fortman Marina on the Alameda Estuary out of San Francisco Bay. I am preparing Legacy for a cruise to Southern California and Sea of Cortez next fall, then in legs for a circumnavigation. I wanted a good light-air boat big enough to provision me for single- or short-handed cruising. Learning how to handle heavy winds in SF. Boat wants to be double-reefed in 20 knots but sails very fast. Ancient Stearns hydraulic backstay tensioner working fine, but am looking for parts I can adapt when the seal finally gives up. Backstay and babystay tension make a serious difference with the C&C 34 in both pointing and speed. The old ST 4000 is working fine, and much better now that I changed some of the root settings, so use it with a remote for singlehanding. Great for tacking, jibing, time off the wheel. Legacy was beautifully maintained, has nearly new sails, lifelines and rod rigging recently renewed, etc.

New C & C 34

New to me anyway. Her name is Excalibur 111, berthed in Point Roberts WA. Close to the San Juans and the Gulf Islands. I brought her from Vancouver to Point Roberts on a beautiful sunny day but no B!!!!y wind, had to motor asll the way. She has been very well looked after by the same owners since new but who are now unable to give me much help in the little details of the boat. I will have to learn by trial & error. Things like the Propane sniffer going off but no discernible leaks, and an electric sump pump that does not seem to want to work. I will keep in touch.

Hi guys. I have a 1978 34 #117. I try to keep updates on the outfitting/updating and sailing logs here:



I'm sure you've probably come across Eric's blog. He probably puts more miles on than most each short season in Toronto:

Eric has a good video of his C&C 34 slogging through high winds.

Congrats on your purchase Lewis. I am planning on buying a 34 as well. I am looking forward to exploring this 'tenderness' reputation. It sounds like if its sailed properly it will move in both light and heavy air versus something stiffer which will only go in heavier air. The question is - how finicky is the boat? Does it have to be just so to make it go? That's not what I have heard. I'm curious as to your experience so far.

Cheers

Steve
