Do you think that was that because of the off centered centerboard on the Mk I? I noticed that on the Mk II they moved they moved the centerboard back to the center of the hull which basicly renders the cabin useless but I suspect it would sail better. I haven't actually sailed this boat yet though.

Re: Corsair 24 Mk II as a first boat?

Brak are u seriously saying that your corsair tacked between 175 degrees? Seems a tad exaggerated no? I have sailed a corsair 27 and it went upwind just fine.

Monohulls are optimized, typically, for pointing. If you are capped at hull speed, the only way to go fast is to improve pointing. However every racer knows that pinching upwind is slower than bearing off a few degrees and keeping speed up. Same goes for multis. You may lose 5 degrees of pointing, but your higher overall speed means you go faster even upwind than a mono. Polars and all...
