Boats and Gear,

There was a race starting so we sort of tagged along without getting on anyone’s air. Frankie is very fast, well balanced and very close winded. As far as I can tell in less than 8 knots of wind anyway.

    She looks like a big 210, especially with the elongated stern! How does she handle large seas? Does she lift to them or just submarine straight through?
