The perfect boat to do cruising and racing is of course the catamaran.

I'm perhaps somewhat biased on that, but which of you can top 10 knts in 15 kts of wind sailing single handed while your Admiral sleeps on a queen sized bed in a air conditioned boat; taking time from the helm to go in and get ice cubes you just made in your propane powered Refridge to refresh the Rum and Zero that you left just sitting around on the helm station?

Oh, and do it pointing 40 degrees off the wind.

Non-believers are welcome to come sailing with me, I've already posted the photo-evidence
