Re: Surf, Gypsy or Wind Sprint
- If you want the highest capacity, build a Windsprint. Bettter yet,
scale up June Bug 10 or 20 percent. I built a Gypsy many years ago
and sailed her a lot, and although she has many virtues, large size
isn't one of them. She's really a very small boat for her length - 2
adults is OK, three is really crowded and makes her a slug in
anything less than a strong breeze.
OTOH, all of these are pretty small boats. If you really want to
carry a load, there might be better choices.
BTW, the Rubens Nymph has surprising carrying capacity; 4 pretty big
adults in relatively smooth water is no strain.
