"Star" is a safe day/weekender.Sailing Today said of the Hawk 20 "During our test she sailed at 35º to the wind. Her fine entry, the stiffness of the boat and the aerofoil rudder section working together to provide excellent close-hauled performance. Hove to she lies comfortably across the wind making only a half-knot of drift. On all points of sailing we found her to be well balanced with enough weather helm to give positive control of the tiller, and if you let everything go she rounds up without a problem""Star" benefits from copper anti-foul, cockpit cover and new cushions etc.
The modern seven-eights Bermudan rig deals the best combination of potential and ease of handling. Nothing beats a Bermudan rig to windward and the big mainsail, 140 sq ft, provides ample off-wind vesselvelocity even without the optional spinnaker. A big mainsail also allows easy spilling in gusts. An easy-reef unit is basic which allows the sail to be reefed using one rope led to a winch. The mainsail can be flattened with clew out-haul and back-stay tensioner which are all basic.
Dedicated day vessel benefiting from the additional comforts and convenience of a 2 dock compartment with cooker and toilet.
There are two large safes, one each side under the chairs amidships. In the sealed bulkhead just aft of the mast are two bottom hinged hatches giving access to two more dry safes for clothes, cameras, sandwiches etc. Under the foredeck there is an enormous storage safe, accessible through the large foredeck hatch. It will take a folding bicycle or a folded inflatable dinghy
A high ballast ratio to give stability rarely permits velocity but the body shape is so efficient and (after exhaustive trials) the balance of the rig so perfect that Hawk will actually plane. Because Hawk is so stiff it sails at only a moderate angle of heel thus retaining potential. It has been clocked planing on a reach with two aboard at 12.6 knots. It sails briskly in Force 2 and regularly exceeds its theoretical body velocity in Force 4 or 5 at 6 to 7 knots, and 7 to 8 knots (or even 12 knots planing) in Force 6. At the same time it is a very spacious, stable vessel for pottering single handed in a Force 1 or just parking in the rushes for a snooze. Hawk is exceptionally manoeuvrable under motor because this is in a features inboard close-able well, directly in bow of the rudder and, being well forward of the transom, there is little chance of cavitation.
Built to a very high basic. Instead of short fibres of glass sprayed from a gun, Hawk is manufactured from the best glass mats, rovings and cloth, all laid up by hand in a temperature controlled factory by Composite Manufacturing and Design Ltd. The whole body is laid up with the latest osmosis resistant isophthalic resins, which have lower water absorption even than epoxy resin. The ballast is pure lead, cast to the shape of the body to place the centre of gravity as low as possible, providing the remarkable stability and self- righting capability.
The pivoting centre-board is lowered and raised by team or helmsman using a single rope which disappears through the cowling within which the operating tackle is enclosed, making it impossible for fingers, sheets, clothing or children to get snagged. The features design of the centre-board means it can be removed from above, avoiding crane-age. The centreboard is made of marina grade aluminium alloy to resist corrosion and will take knocks and bumps far better than a GRP board; it is not a commonplace flat metal plate but a high condition casting, fully aero-foiled for performance
