Midsummer is in excellent condition, very well equipped and regularly updated.
Ideally suited to a new Day Skipper or the well experienced, she is very sea kindly and easy to sail, having roller reefing on both main and foresail. Duncan Kent says in his YM article she can easily be sailed single handed.
Her shallow draught with the centreboard up allows her to enter places like Christchurch Harbour and with the centre-board down she sails well to windward.
