Re: Any Cal 22 Owners?

Yeah, that was my next question....If I had enough track for the fairleads.

Folsom Lake (where I mostly sail) is mostly a light wind lake. The 155 would be to just make up for the light winds... What's the maximum size do you think the stock tracks would accomodate?

I really think my 135 is about it. Do you have the fin keel? She moves pretty well in light winds.
How bout an Asym? That's what I have thinking about trying to add.

Re: Any Cal 22 Owners?

It's a shoal and It does move well in light winds. I was just out in 4 knots and was traveling 2.5 knots SOG... Just plan to race it in some beercans here locally and would like to at least put the hurt on the Catalina 22's

Re: Any Cal 22 Owners?

For JAM, you're looking at 240 vs. 270. From what I have read from other Cal 22 owners over the years, it's no contest. You should beat them. Of course, I believe most the Cal 22's I have read about are fin keels. All I've read indicates the fin keel goes to wind better than the shoal.

I have not raced my Cal against a Cat 22, so no personal experience. I race a Pearson on the Ohio River, but the lake I sail my Cal on has a limited sailing community....because it's just not that great a place to sail. Very close to my house though.

We've had one 2 1/2 mile pursuit race with handicap and four contestants....Potter 19, Southcoast 22, O'Day 302 and myself. So nothing anyone would consider fast. We have a Mac 26 and a Cat 250 in the marina, but they did not participate. I finished just short of an hour before everyone else. The O'day 302 is the only boat in our fleet that might have a shot at me with the much bigger sail plan. We have playfully matched raced a few times...I always get ahead going to wind, and he makes up ground going down wind. Part of that is because it's a finger lake and we have to tack a lot. The Cal is just much more nimble and easy to get moving.

Please share your experience racing against the Catalina's when you do. I'm curious.

Re: Any Cal 22 Owners?

No. I don't have a 155%. I'm basing my comments on where the sheets hit the cars and sail shape on my 135%. Sorry.

Re: Any Cal 22 Owners?

We have bunch of Santana 20's and Catalina 22's, and couple of Santana 23's as well an assorted mix of other 4ktsb's in our club. I am not looking to build a race boat out of this one. Just want to have fun and stay in the mix. I'm claiming a PHRF of 240 with a symmetrical chute. Not sure if I've seen a rating for a shoal keel? I'm hoping with the fast hull speed I can also put the hurt on the Santana 20 fleet on the longer courses.

I'll probably be posting most of my pictures on FB on the Cal 22 Sailboats group page. I seldom post here...

Re: Any Cal 22 Owners?

I'm not on FB, but I'll sign into my wife's account and take a look in the future. I really think your boat is capable of being in the mix with those listed.

I got out yesterday too! Same wind you had, but it was nice to get out for a sail in dec.
