Need help on choice of daysailor cruiser/racer
I need some help/tips from members on making a sailboat purchase for racing and cruising which ideally i would like to buy before end of this April.
I have a young family (8 and 5 year old who love sailing) I am looking to puchase (under 10k) a boat that can compete very well on performance rating with a fleet of SJ 21's. I would not be here asking as there are some SJ21's for sale here execpt for the fact that I really do not like the interior of the SJ21 for those days when we are simply cruising as a family, but I really enjoy the thrill of racing so want to be in a position to go head to head with the sj21 in our local summer races when I need too.
I have looked at a number of boats i.e. J24 Capri 22 Santana 23 etc. but just don't know which one of these or any others I should really focus on to purchase.
Any help is really appreciated.
