So I'm Ryan, I've been sailing since I was 8, I'm an instructor at community boating center, and technically the classical sailing team coach.
To keep this short, I recently bought a 1973 force 5, waiting on a few parts from weeks to give it a thorough test out of newport. I love racing and pushing myself and crew to the limit. Multiple times I've sailed the clubs hunter 216s about 14 miles out in conditions from 12 knots to 25 knot winds with 4 foot waves. Same has been done in performance boats such as the laser 2, our current record being 24 miles in 4 hours.
I also have my us sailing level 1 certification, and I'm a starting skipper for my school.
Feel free to ask me any questions.
