    that's quite interesting - I am about the same size! How well do you fit in the cockpit with a full crew?

    Depends what you mean by full crew. I have a tiller but I also have a mainsheet track with a liferaft stowed under it. That takes up a lot of cockpit.
    I have an Aeries self steering but also have a Raymarine autopilot so that takes up one persons seat to stbd by the tiller. that leaves 2 places in front of the track & one behind it.
    to be honest if I go away with friends then 3 is really great with one kipping up forward with the bags one side of the berth & one in the saloon with stuff on the opposite bunk at night. Then i sleep in the aft berth with my gear in the berth next to me.Wet gear in the heads & aft locker
    Under way their gear goes up forward & one saloon berth has any day gear with lee cloths raised & one berth free.( But has lee cloth for sleeping under way) & chart table free
    Then there are 3 seats in the cockpit. So the boat is great for 3 long term & I have had several 2-3 week hols with 3 up. 4 is Ok if one does not mind spending some time below whilst sailing ( like my wife who likes to go below & read & complain about the weather))

    If racing then crew are on weather deck anyway but do not really need loads of crew. 4 total is enough.
    It is all down to the fact that my wife does not understand me !!

    It is a difficult call, is it not? Plus getting boats rated to IRC is a real pain & puts one off from the start.
    Nope, you say to one boat "you won IRC" and you say to another one "you won the NHC/golf style system for doing better than you usually do".
