 FAQ's

QUESTION:  How does the PCF 40 perform under sail?

ANSWER :  Basically if you want to go direct to wind just turn on your engine. While you will be able to work to windward when forced to, as with all shallower draft, ketch rigged, low aspect vessels, windward sailing pointing ability is restricted to, at best, 70 degrees. On a reach or with the wind on the quarter in 15 to 20 knots of wind you should be able to sail along comfortably at around 6 knots. With the wind blowing less than 12 knots, having the engine ticking over at idle speed would keep you moving at around 5 knots
