Moody S31 Suitable boat for round Britain?

Would the S31 be suitable for such passage making? I would like to feel that my first boat would be capable of such a cruising adventure.
How does the S31 handle in rough waters / high winds? On paper she would appear under canvassed for her displacement, compared to say a Maxi 1000, so presumably not too good in light winds? Average passage making speed for navigation? Handling for couple and single handing? Sufficient storage aboard?Any particular weaknesses or strongpoints?
