    Wharram tiki 38

    Hundreds of Wharrams have been built, more than any other cruising catamaran design period. Many have circumnavigated - they are designed for safety in open water and have an excellent safety record. In terms of the inevitable stories about how badly they sail - take a look at the videos by of a T38 by Pilgrim Sailing on Youtube (folks who can build AND sail). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u50DVuFcoRQ Speed sailing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=80pXC-n_wbQ Bare poles storm https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uDQdjGbE7Iw Atlantic crossing

    There is a lot of nonsense written about Wharrams, often by folks who have not sailed one. See link below for discussion on windward sailing: http://tiki21littlecat.blogspot.com/2017/07/can-wharrams-go-to-windward.html

    The new sailing twin skin setup

    Obviously a simpler version of the concept, but still confirms that there is nothing new under the sun. https://www.wharram.com/site/how-we-design/wharram-wingsail-rig
