I want to get in the position of being able to build a class at my yacht club. There have been other attempts, that have failed, so I know the likelihood of it actually catching on is limited, but I'm sick of PHRF.
If we could even get 3 or 4 of the same going, it would be a huge improvement.
I've read all the other threads about performance 30s, but want some customized thoughts.
Aiming for a purchase price of sub $20k, need to be reasonably plentiful, somewhere in the 30' range (cold water, old guys). And would like it to be at least entertaining to sail - no full keeled cruisers.
Preference goes to lower crew numbers. We don't have a lot of excess railmeat around.
Leading candidate is J/29, but crew numbers are an issue. It's a light-air venue so we may be able to ignore this.
