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.

Amphibious Macroplankton Oughtredia doublendus
Mostly found frequenting the littoral and estuarine zones in the southern half of the Salish Sea, though sightings have been recorded both north and south of this area, and occasionally, but rarely, inland, in freshwater environments. This species lives on micro-brewed beer and dutch-oven biscuits,and displays brightly colored nylon and gore-tex plumage during the rainy season. Approach with caution!
