These light dories have quite a lively performance, especially under sail: the extra reserve stability of the rounded sides helps the sailing ability, handling and safety. However a dory is primarily a rowing boat, and no compromise is made of the superb handling under oars. Attempts to design "sailing dories" end up losing the style and character of the true dory.
