Owner's Comments

The Cox 22 was built in Brightlingsea, Essex where Soulmate is now based. A sturdy and fast sailing boat she has allowed me to teach my children to sail with confidence from the age of 5 whilst we have cruised the Suffolk & Essex coasts. Two handed we have taken an annual cruise to France - covering the coast from Dunkerque to Boulogne. One high point has to remain Boulogne to Ramsgate in 7.5 hours - a cracking sail! She is easily sailed single handed I have enjoyed many weekends afloat.

Soulmate is an excellent first boat for pottering along the coast or more adventurous sailing. Now I need something larger to stow the 4 children!

Whilst I would not intentionally sail in strong winds I was caught in a squall with gusts of force 6 to 7 off the Naze at Walton - later confirmed by the coastguard station. The boat behaved better than me! With Storm Jib and 3 slabs in the main we were still making progress on a close reach whilst playing the main like a big dinghy.
