Hitting the waves in 1981 the Sadler 29 quickly found favour in the club racing and cruising scene. Conceived as a fast cruiser and club racer she also offered the possibility of unsinkability - although if one tries hard enough..... All Sadlers have the reputation for easy handling and excellent maneuverability but the 29 in particular would be easy for a single handed skipper or couple, perhaps with small children to manage. Bilge keels suit her perfectly for our sailing area too.
And finally, a few words of praise from a West Country Sailing School with 60,000 miles of experience with a 29 "she is exceptionally roomy for her size, and her layout is admirably suited to a cruising life both at sea and in harbour. By force 8 or more, we have three slabs in the main plus the storm jib if we are beating. We have quite a lot of experience in these conditions. Downwind in heavy weather, she handles with a precision that continues to delight us. Even surfing at upwards of 12 knots, she remains fully controllable" and I can't say fairer than that!
