If you are looking for old(er) boats that are competitive, look at a wayfarer. Mine was built in 1958, has never been redecked, still with max correctors + min wieght and still a competitive racing boat. Unlike some of the here today gone tomorrow classes (MXray anyone?) boats such as this still have a good use and a great secondhand value

You have to admit that the Wayfarer has stood the test of time.  You know why, as a cruising boat it handles nicely, hat's off to Ian Proctor.  My current boat was designed by Phil Morrison.

The Squib is an ideal boat for saying old is good for getting a top position. It is well known in the class that the first 140 boats are quick at national champs or is it the quick sailors have those boats? We are a keel boat class that can say we have had more than 10% of our 800 plus boats out at a championship. This year it is at Howth YC Eire where we got 100 last time. Drool Flying Fifteens!

My parents are looking for a boat for me for my graduation. My grandfather has a Princess boat and I do not know which one I want.
