The Ericson 38 is clearly a cruising boat but her performance is certainly very respectable. With a sail area-displacement ratio of slightly over 18 and a displacement-length ratio of about 240, she has enough power for decent performance in light air yet is not so overpowered as to be impossible or dangerous to sail with a short handed crew. However, headsails are large and a good furling system and large self-tailing winches are a must for ease of handling. The narrow shroud base allows for eight degree sheeting angles and, with proper sails and trim, she should be able to sail to within 38 to 40 degrees of the apparent wind without difficulty.
