Howdy!

I wanted to purchase a 30 catalina in SD and sail it back (up wind) to portland.

Is this possible? Winter maybe? Summer months I think a no go. Beautiful boats

hard to sail up wind?

Kraemer...I would suggest that this is NOT a passage that should be attempted in a Catalina 30. There are tons of c30's up north...buy one up there or buy the one in SD and get it trucked north...it will be safer and cheaper since you won't have all those repairs to make!

I love Catalinas and have owned two so this is not bias...they are simply not built for the rigors of that particular passage which is probably the most difficult stretch of coast in the entire country. Cat30's are built to sail in Southern Cal or down to Mexico!!
