Re: New sailing j-22 to a Hobie wave

A Cat is harder to tack because of the resistance to turning of the two hulls. the Wave has no jib so you can't use the back wind technique but you can head up a little just before you tack so you will have to turn a smaller amount during the tack.
I watched the first America Cup races when they started to sail a Cat and even those veteran sailors did not do very well sailing or tacking a CAT
