Re: Examples of cca era sailboats

Let's include the S&S CCA entry in the 29 foot family, The original Columbia from Glas Laminates in 1961. Yep, if you sail a "CCA" boat, you'll likely notice you are not the fastest boat, but you are fast enough; not a roomy boat, but roomy enough; low freeboard, but not the wettest boat. Yes she he heels a bit but comfortably so. But she has a silky sea-kindly motion that will have you arriving well-rested and ready for sunset cocktails in the anchorage.
