Ranger 26 (Rascal)

Rascal is our smallest cruising keelboat. She has a masthead sloop rig, sail area of 322 sq ft, fin keel with draft of 4.33 ft, and spade rudder. She displaces 5,860 lbs and has 2,050 lbs of ballast. Rascal is rigged to fly a symmetrical spinnaker. She sleeps 3-4.

Rascal requires a keelboat novice rating.

Been sailing more in the last couple of weeks than I usually manage in a month. Been throwing the Lightning round the fixed lap, concentrating far too hard!
