Re: Recommendation for 16-20' Racer/Cruiser
Dylan- I also sail and race on Lake Murray so I'm very familiar with the typical conditions. Have you considered a San Juan 21 or something like that? Still a trailer-sailor, but more more sporty than your Com Pac. My Starwind 19 is somewhere between a San Juan and a Com-Pac on the "exciting to sail" scale. A Holder 20 is an excellent suggestion, pretty fast and relatively cheap as well.
PM me if you want to talk more about Lake Murray sailing. I regularly race and its true most of the boats out there are larger keelboats. There is one VX-One which seems fun, but that's not a cheap ride. Good luck in your search!
