What speeds can they reach and what would would be there average speed in lets say, 15 knots of breeze?
Thanks,
Conor

Hello Connor,

You may want to go live in France for a year. You will learn a lot about how they are sailed that way.

I've cruised and raced on the boats, only the series boats with fixed keel. I reached 12 knots (in 15-18 kt, nothing scary) without my wife being scared, though it was one of her first times on a sailboat. Previous owner went over 22 and was scared at the time, surfing in big waves he said.

I'm looking for an equivalent boat, but the only comparable SA vs Displ is in a dinghy in my area. My bottom was always wet on a mini anyways.
