I do not believe that there was a Bristol 28. I think there was a Bristol 27 and Bristol 30 and both were very different boats than the Bristol 29 and Bristol 29.9. If I had to chose fromf the boats on your list, there is no doubt in my mind that the only one that I would want to take to Bermuda would be a Tartan 30 both from a build quality and a sailing ability standpoint, with the C&C 30 being a distant second and the others not even on my list. One nice thing about the Tartan 30 on the US east coast, is that in many areas they were a one design class until about 10-12 years ago and so you find nicely maintained and nicely upgraded versions out there at pretty reasonable prices.
