Safety, comfort, speed. In that order is what I look for in a boat. According to these stats (generated by SAIL CALCULATOR) the FC is only about 10% less comfortable and fast, but just as safe.

Looking forward to see a good discussion here. Hoping for comments by people who have sailed or ownder both boats smiling smiley


(PS I have just bought an FC22: LOVELY!)

So that we can update the database, what is:

Your hull No
Your real Name
Your home port
Your vessel's name

If you prefer you can send me a private message.

Thanks
John
