Thanks for the report. I would love to "go large" and get a 31R but money is a big issue with two of our 4 kids starting college in August. I think I'll start small and see how the family likes it, if they don't, I will be go to racing beach cats...alone.

SF Bay
I've owned an F-27 and am currently in the process of buying an F-31R. If you are out on SF Bay during the season (Apr - Oct) then you are out in 20+ knots of wind...that's just the bottom end from early afternoon on and continues until sunset and will often go up to 30 knots and then add in the gusts. F-24s seem to handle the conditions fine....but you need to be in foulies because it's going to be wet...and it's not a fine spray. F-24s have done open ocean racing here too - like the doublehanded Farallons and done well. That can be a pretty rough race. I wouldn't hesitate to sail an F-24 in 20 kts. The F-24 is really a do most anything (but distance open ocean) kinda' boat. I haven't gotten one because I also like cruising and the accommodations are REALLY spartan for staying onboard.

I read that an F24 just won the SF Bay speed sailing event? Do you have any info on that? Were there no F31's in the race or was it on corrected time? Was it Russel Long driving or something?

Well, Puppeteer (F-24) won the singlehanded Farallones a couple of weeks ago - race and division ...maybe that's what you heard. I believe that was sailed by Davis...and I don't think there were any other F boats or any other kind of multi entered.
