Taffy Posted January 9, 2008 Report Share Posted January 9, 2008 It is a Disgrace that the multihulls will be omitted from London. I firmly believe that a multihull should be included but perhaps its time for a review of the class is sailed. The way some multihull classes are getting so sophisticated we might as well be sailing Mono Hulls.Catamaran classes wanting to sail Windward/return and no reaches, Come on! even the Little America Cup Cats did not do that.Lets get behind a class that takes us back to basics Even though I have never owned or raced a Hobie 16,and have always argued against them. Lets be honest it's the biggest selling class of all times, still relativly affordable allowing all the poorer nations to participate.No spinnakers no centerboards, only the best sailors win. I am sure Hobie(as they used to do for their worlds)would surply an identical set of boats for the Olympics.Lets wake up and realise that the boom in Catamaran in the 70s and 80s were due to the fact that cats were fast and cheap. Lets get back to those days and stop trying to have cats sailing like Monos. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
