Guess it depends on how you define 'short-handed'. Looks like a very efficient and easily-handled rig and probably does not need a huge deck crew. Chefs, stewards, housekeepers, etc would be another matter, of course.
After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
