In Topic: Why do multis (supposedly) not point as high?

Fat crusing cats from the 60ies and 70ies surely didn't help busting the myth. I delivered such an ugly fat Bastard a few years ago. The tacking angle was ridiculous. This boat just didn't do 'upwind'. We managed something like 80 to 85° of true Wind angleangle.a real pro might have gotten that vital extra 5° out of her.
Don't pinch her, the owner had instructed us. She doesn't go if you pinch her!
Best joke I've every heard.

BTW. no Aussi on the podium!

 

So who will be there?

 

Well it'll only leave a world population of about 7 billion to claim the spots. I'm sure they'll find someone to fill the spaces.

I think that the Aussies are not very good at sailing.

So they invented the skiff I heard. And then what?

Nothing!

Hi believe Australia is in general not a good place for sailing.

Nah, Time to get fat, I think we are due a windy worlds after the last two (Hawaii and hayling)

SW

 
Without jixing the event with it's not normally like this'', Sorrento usually gets a thermal seabreaze every afternoon at that time of year which is offshore from the venue at about 10 to 20 knots. Glammor location.
I've been getting fat too though
10-20 knot thermal breeze, sounds just like Hayling 'usually' is...
 
I think an Aussie summer sea breeze is a little different to whatever they get over there!

Down under the shifts go in the other direction. Everybody knows that.

BTW. no Aussi on the podium!
