Re: Atkins Valgerda First Sail
Not my favorite take on the faering-based sort of cruiser. Any of the ones with a centerboard or daggerboard instead of that shallow fixed keel will sail better and row much, much, much, much better.
Look at Oughtred or Vivier or Dias for superior designs for daysailing.
