I've considered bringing my 3.9m on a few occasions. Tony has suggested I would be welcome, but I was always concerned about weather and speed compared to the big boats so didn't come. Tony has previously suggested that alternative plans could be formulated for the wee boats. Last yr I managed to blag a seat in something full size so have a reasonable perspective. the conditions last year were as good as you could hope for, and the route was relatively sheltered. The group don't travel as a massive flotilla but tend to pair up (well maybe upto four boats together) and then rendezvous at various places. That let's those with higher speeds exercise their engines better and the slower folk catch up. I doubt anyone was making less than 20 kts though. Looking at this year's plans I decided that it was more exposed than last year and so the wee boat is staying at home.
If you come in a 3.3 you'll be made welcome and it could be done, but unless you have great weather and probably some real experience of those sort of big sib trips you might find it tough going (or having to stay in the bar!).
As jambo says there are plans for a trip in the same sort of area specifically designed around smaller/slower boats.
