So... I went out Twice this week,.. the maiden voyage on my CM21, and two afternoons later the first time out with my wife on "Tiny Dancer"!! People had said so many bad things about the Clipper Marine brand that I was somewhat apprehensive when I dropped her in for the first time sunday. We motored from the ramp to the slip enjoying the incredible scenery of the snow covered mountain tops for about 10 minutes, fighting the worry about the possibility of taking on water. It didn't happen! Not a drop! Wink Well, we left it in the slip all snug and tied up tight,.. decided to go get something to eat, and come back in a couple hrs to see if it had taken on any water. It didn't! Two days later, tuesday evening, I went down to check on her and go out with the sails in the wind for the first time and was nearly Shocked at how well it sailed!!! I was out with a crew member from my J-24 race team, and we were both pleased and surprised at how ell the CM21 sailed! Wind was enough for light whitecaps and I was enjoying myself completely!
Two evenings later I took my wife out to show off the little CM21 and though I had told her that it sailed really well,.. she was still surprised at how well the boat behaved in the 10knots of wind that we had! One thing that she said that was worth mentioning was: "We are Never selling this boat, I don't care if we get rid of the J-24, but I don't Ever want to sell this one!" Smile We had maybe 15 drops of water spray up through where the cable goes through but no other water at all! It handled gusts very well, we sailed with neutral helm, and it was surprisingly quick for a boat with such a slow PHRF! I believe we will do quite well against the fleet in PHRF! I want to make it clear, as a racer in a very active J-24 fleet for the past 4 years, and owning a Newport 28 which we have raced in PHRF events a total of 3 additional years,.... I Love the little Clipper! I have to believe that those who speak ill of the Clipper marine 21s have either never sailed one,.. or are not very good sailors! pirat

I get this all the time, owners love them, and people that have never set foot on one, spread lies about them.

I have had 1983 Mac 25, and I can tell you from first hand experience, the Clipper Marine is years ahead of a Mac, that is 10 years newer.

I think the reason people dog them, is it somehow makes their sailboat better, spreading trash about a sailboat maker that is out of business, that cannot defend themselves.

Tonight, with 4 adults on my boat,.. in about 8-10Knots of wind,.. we sailed even with a San Juan 7.7 for about 2 miles! The boat sails Great! (with the jib up,.. Not the 150 Genoa)

Oops.. that might have been misleading.. What I was saying is that we sailed even with a SJ7.7 while sailing with the jib up,.. I did not mean that the boat doesn't sail well with the 150 Genoa! (still haven't used the 150)
