A day sailer is essentially a sailing boat that has no living accommodation, or sparse accommodation. A Harbor 20 is one such sailboat.  She and similar day sailers like the Squib, Ajax and Yeoman can be used for Spartan cruising with the addition of a boom tent, and minimal camping equipment. These boats are raced; indeed, they were primarily designed for racing and occasional day sailing.

Small cruising yachts such as the Leisure 17 and the West Wight Potter are also suitable for day sailing.

There’s a lot to be said in favour of day sailing, because it is the least demanding form of sailing. Good weather can be chosen when the tides are suitable for a few pleasurable hours afloat, unlike cruising when it may be necessary to sail in conditions that are far from ideal.
