Hi to everyone on the MOA. After 15 years of ownership of our much loved M35 ‘Dreamcatcher’ we are thinking of moving up to a late M36. My only real concern is how well the 36 sails compared to the 35 as it is 2’ longer, 2 tons heavier but only has 12sq foot extra sail area. We have always felt the 35 sails well pointing up to 30 degrees to the apparent wind whilst making good way and effortlessly hitting 7 knts + on a reach. We will only be looking at the standard fin keel and would not want to be disappointed on sailing performance. Your thoughts and observations please. After years of meaning to join the association I have finally done so and look forward to sharing information and meeting up with some of you. Our East coast home port is Nth Fambridge on the R Crouch. Our cruising area is East & South coasts, France, Belgium and Holland. Looking forward to your replies, Graham.
