I do consider HR29 very seaworthy, fit even for serious ocean sailing, and I guess most of you guys do..
She has all those qualities we expect from a seagoing vessel, not just by "feeling", but also by calculated values like
motion comfort ratio and capsize ratio.

But then, personal experience by someone who really did it would be most interesting.

We have our HR29 not so very long and so far could sail her only during usual summer-vacations, which,
being at home in the Western Baltic, did not include any ocean-sailing and only some nice weather days on Skagerrak.
(A trip from Lubeck to Ellös, actually, just to see "where she was born"..)

So I would like to ask..
Does anyone positively know of, or even has done himself, one of these offshore voyages in a HR29 ?
- Azores and back
- Atlantic crossing
- North Sea crossing, like Denmark/Norway to England/Scotland or vice versa

Did anyone ever meet heavy weather in ocean seas,
for example Biscay, western channel approaches, Irish sea, Skagerrak in a HR29 ?

I copied this topic to the 'General HR 29' section, where it might be more easily found. So let's continue discussion there :).
