Dreaming of Frostbiting

Take a read through this very detailed and informative boat show review article from Cruising World discussing different types of sailboats - from multi hulled to classic, contemporary, etc – and their upsides, downsides and topsides. In comparing/contrasting I have to agree with the author that, ” …whichever boat was used and enjoyed more by its owner was the better one…” but like all sailors I have a preference. These days it’s embodied by the Dufour 365 but hey, it’s a dreamers prerogative to change his mind ;-) At the moment I'd be lucky to own a Laser (but I don't). Speaking of that...Laser frostbiting - a hallowed Westport, CT tradition - is starting up at CPYC. Here's a sailing activity that'll seperate men from boys...

Basically a fluff piece.

If you check out this year's results at CPYC you will see that the boys are defintely giving the men a run for their money.

Did you mean to link to Cottage Park YC (cpyc.org) or Cedar Point YC (cedarpointyc.org)? Both have Laser frostbiting but Cedar Point's program is far larger.
