Mea Culpa !! Didn't see that thread. A Catamaran eh ? In his case training wheels may not be a bad idea !! Maybe he should have gone Tri.
(nah, I'm not really bagging the guy. He may have had a couple of unfortunate accidents along the way but nevertheless he has more sailing miles under his belt those most of us will ever manage. He does have an ability to generate bad press however. )
The reference to getting a move along was more to emphasise the need for him to get round before the new breed swamp him. One hopes the 70kt winds are not headwinds.
Interesting the doubts being raised about the suitability of the boat.
