Wasn't the first post... but blowing the doors off of a bendytoy isn't that impressive,... and getting dusted by a catamaran isn't that unusual.
Granted, upwind, you'll probably beat the catamaran... but on a reach or run, it'll dust you.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
