Racing a Melges 24

Hi everyone...

I just wanted to ask if any of you have ever raced a Melges 24 on the Long Island Sound. If so, I wanted to ask for any opinions regarding the racing experience. The boat seems very light, so I wanted to know how does the boat handle in above 15-knot wind, 2 to 4 feet of waves etc? Any information you can provide me will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
