Hi all, My son is doing A-Levels (UK pre-uni exams), and has chosen as a research project to explore the designs and compromises around Racer-Cruisers.

He has created a short questionnaire for sailors interested in the subject, and we would be hugely grateful if any of you were willing to spend 10 minutes to fill it in?

Here is a link to the questionnaire:

For those wanting more detail, the project is something called an Extended Project Qualification (EPQ). It's like half an A-Level, and requires the student to pose a question, then do research to answer it. I used to race and cruise a Dehler 36 called Polly's Kettle, and he grew up around that boat, hence his interest.
