Comments: WHISP slides along most easily as a solo boat. With two aboard, she loses some of her weight advantage, though with her narrow beam and low wetted surface she’s still a very pleasant boat to row. Under sail, she seems equally fast with one or two in anything but light airs, and benefits from the stability of a second crew member.
