Re: First Sail New Boat

My thought would be I owned my First J24 new in 1981 and really understand how it will behave in pretty much any condition

Fast forward to 2010 and my new to me Cal 29

Keep in mind I spend a huge amount of time racing other peoples large boats

It took me most of the first year to understand how it would behave in bad conditions and which sail combinations were effective

All aboard. Next stop Costa Rica!

Give a holler on your way down the lower Hudson River. My boat is in Nyack, NY.

First Sail New Boat

Ok folks, we finally got our new boat, a 1994 Hunter 33, in the water, and ready to sail. We head out for the sail test Saturday, and if all goes well, we'll sail her from Midland to Penetang. We had planned to have some experience on board, but those plans fell through. I'm just about done the CPS course (exam next week), so I'm of the belief I can plot a course and get her over there, with my wife. But I still welcome any advice!!
