“Aurora” is a wholesome compromise of traditional hull with performance cruising under body and rig. She will stand up to heavy weather with a minimum of fuss and will ghost along surprisingly well in lighter air. The sails are new and the engine has been replaced. She has been in the same family since new. Seven months of every year have been spent inside a heated building.
