What is the right sized boat for....

Sailing the Californian Coast?

Hi All,
Thanks for welcoming me, there are some good people on this forum...better than other forums I've seen. LOL.

I am a member of a steering committee, for a class project, at San Francisco State University. The project focuses on small groups working with particular local neighborhoods, in order to develop promotional events that will attract sailing enthusiasts visiting for the 2013 America's cup to various districts in the city. The top 3 proposals will be presented to city hall, of which they will select one for implementation.

Our job as the steering committee is to collect data to help the groups. Since we are COLLEGE STUDENTS, we most definitely have NO MONEY, (LOL!)and cannot afford to purchase data.

Personally I have sailed maybe 2 dozen times in my life from 8ft dinghy’s to 65ft luxury tours: the last time I sailed was a 35' boat in Monterrey bay, with a friend and his dad. I hope to become more involved with sailing as my time frees up over the years, and my income increases.

Please Help Us Discover What Boat Nautical Enthusiasts Enjoy, and What Would Appeal to them When They Visit Our City By Filling Out This Quick and Anonymous Survey.

Thank You Sincerely for Your Time and Help!
MKTG443 Steering Committee S.F.S.U. Spring 2012

I have a Hardin45 so that means I can only vote for the 41~50 ft.
The size of the vessel you may want will range from 26 to 50 ft...
Plus you should have allowed us to tag more size catagories. Because it depends on the boat and the skill of the people on said boat.

How many will usually be sailing/living on the boat, and their experience?

There are some of us who live aboard year round and sail to far away places.

How does that answer my question to the original poster? Or, was that posted just to impress us?
