We sail on an inland lake – but probably quite a bit smaller than Windermere.
We are very competitive against Lasers, Enterprises, Laser Vagos but Solos give us a very good run for their money. Years ago we sailed on Bala in Wales in a different (slower) Wayfarer, again we felt we were always competing with the other classes.
There’s no doubt that the most difficult conditions are very very light winds when the smaller boats will get moving and we just sit there. But anything else is fine.
