It only rains once a year here.  It just starts in October and ends sometime in early July. 

In Topic: Amateur SH racing boat for 30k USD

21 September 2016 - 03:56 AM

In my opinion, any boat with runners is a royal PITA to race short handed.  I've raced a SR33 short handed and it is certainly doable (and it is a LOT of fun), but I think it is very difficult boat to sail to its rating in the predominantly light-air we have in SW-BC.  If the wind kicks up, weight on the high side is a real advantage...the shorthanded lack of self-moving ballast means shifting down in sail inventory just when things would get to be fun fully crewed.  Personally, I don't find the huge cockpit of the SR to be an advantage SH -- it seems like I was always at the wrong end of the skating rink to deal with whatever task I was facing.
