Buying A Race Boat For Cruising? (full tour)
We have never considered a race boat as a cruising boat…but now we are!
Let me explain.
We always assumed race boats required expertise. That there would be a certain amount of intensity involved reserved for only serious sailors. Not for the cruisy sailor who just loves travel and being out on the water. We were sorely mistaken.
Sure, there are all kinds of sailboats floating about the world for all different types of sailors and all sorts of sailing environments. And just because a boat was built with one thing in mind, doesn’t mean it’s limited to that one thing.
And that’s what our new friends Paul, Sharon, and Georgie showed us. A race boat can also be a rad family cruising boat. Which is also what they are learning. Because it’s a brand spanking new world to them too!
It’s always exciting to step aboard a new boat, take note of the differences, the similarities, and the completely unknown. But stepping off Curiosity and onto Slime wasn’t exactly going from one cat to another. It was more like going from a mini-van to Ferrari. This is entering a whole new world of sailing.
