been looking at a lot of c30s.

The popularity, features, and abundance of replacement parts makes it a very desirable boat for a newbie like me...

My greatest source of anxiety moving from dinghy to keelboats was docking and transitioning from being under power to being under sail.
Heeling will make you a little nervous. Not because you aren't used to it but because you aren't used to trusting the boat to stay upright on its own.
