If you want to 'feel' it's working hard just wrap your hand around a jib sheet and feel it vibrating, then look outboard at the waves rushing by, the whole point of a multi is that instead of wasteing the force of the wind in heeling forces it changes it to forward motion

If you really need to feel the boat working, I suppose you could catch your ankles on the swim ladder on fall off head first, doing a situp wih 10kts of water rushing up you nose is a great way of understanding how hard the boat is working.
I tell you, I will NOT be doing that again, there are easier ways to wash hair.
