Shields class as family daysailer


New Member
I am interested in hearing thoughts on using a shields class as a simple family daysailer.

I've been sailing Rainbows and Hunter 22s, but am love the traditional looks of the Shields class and the ability to purchase at the ~$15K price point.

I would not plan to race, but rather to simple daysail in the Chesapeake bay and surrounding waters near Annapolis.
