I am seriously considering buying the 2000 Rolland Dingo #305. But, it weighs 2434 lbs. or 1,104 kg making it the heaviest mini in northern California. Emma Creighton’s Rogers design #574 weighs 1874 lbs. or 850 kg that’s 560 lbs or three big crew and their gear.
574 also has 60 sq feet more spinnaker area than 305. I don’t see how I could ever be competitive with those numbers. Any thoughts?
