23. I sailed a Tornado for about one hour
Wet suit, booties, trapeze, the whole works, and I was, like, totally worn out. I was trashed the next day, every mussel in my body ached. Playing with those things are best left to the young kids.

I'll stick with the forty-footers, they generally have a reasonably dry cockpit. Twenty-two knots with a four foot roster tail, that's something to experience! The acceleration is incredible, too, it hard to describe the feeling of being pushed back in cockpit by the force, or being up on the foredeck and have the boat pulled out from under you feet. I ALWAYS worn safety harness.
