I got really interested in unstayed rigs, in particular cat ketches.  They may not  be the first ones to round the windward buoy, but they may well be the first to make landfall on a tradewind passage, no to mention the much greater simplicity of handling the rig in the general.  There are a number of  interesting and realistically priced boats out there including Freedoms and Tantons.

I forgot to take TMCS for Thanksgiving, but have since gotten back to Chapter 6.
