W.D.Schock Corporation of Corona, California www.wdschock.comComments from S20 Sailors "performs like a dinghy, but SAILS like a keelboat"
"Santana 20's are fairly inexpensive compared to other keelboats. Because it is usually dry-docked, bottom maintenance and slip fees are usually minimal."
"For a boat of its size, it performs very well. It is one of the faster 20 foot keelboats and can outperform many 25 foot cruising boats."
"An S20 is a complex boat. It has almost the same controls as larger keelboats and is a great learning platform for younger sailors."
"Santana 20's are sailed in the open oceans of Southern California as well as inland lakes. This speaks to the flexibility and adaptability of this boat."
"It can be sailed solo and raced with 2 to four people."
"there is an active fleet at Cherry Creek both on Wednesday and Thursday nights"
