Thanks for the answers. A couple more questions: has anyone here drysailed these? Stock, C30s don't have a single-point attachment system, but it seems fairly simple to cut an opening in the deck above the keel to create one. Also - any attempts to race one with a symmetrical?
Wow, never realized that the mast on the c30 in the advert was carbon. Who paints a carbon mast?
Anyways, is the ¾ rig a liability? Seems like the jib is very small compared to the main - is ordering a genoa necessary to be competitive upwind?
So how much work needs to be done to make this into a decent racer? Getting rid of the inboard, new rudder/rudder attachment, carbon mast? Has anyone sailed these under ORC and know how they do? Considering buying but I've heard bad things in the past as to their predominantly-cruising nature.
