My son cannot wait to go out for a sail.
She should try sailing on a trimaran..

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.

Hmmm... I'll just have to tell the ISAF that all the records set by Ellen and her fellow multihull sailors aren't valid since Trimarans and Catamarans aren't sailboats... even though they're boats and have sails... Damn barge owner.

Off course they are valid...ISAF is very generous....they even consider windsurfing and kite surfing...and that does not make them sailboats either

Just pulling your legs....you know that....

By the way...do you know what happen tho these guys??

If Fred can tow her on a set of skis behind a sailboat, then she may change her mind. He would also probably have to roll the boat.


SD,

I still have yet to get the wife sailing as the boat is still on the hard, but I see a cat or tri in my future if my wife enjoys sailing. She has made it clear that the sailboat is "not to lean over to far". She has heard that cats dont "lean" as far. I see a reefed mainsail with no jib as I drag the anchor in my future. The plus side is the fresh paint on the topside should never need redone.

RAGTIMEDON is on a distinguished road
Mark Twain reportedly said "When I was 14 my father was such a fool I was ashamed to be seen with him. When I was 21 I looked back and was amazed how much the old man had learned in just 7 years." It is a common malady among teens; has been for centuries, and will continue forever. Cheer up, some day those kids will grow up and present you with grandchildren, perhaps your grandson will like to sail! Grandchildren are your reward for not drowning your teenagers!

Alex-

Can you confirm they actually made it out of the marina...

and yes, I know you're kidding... if you weren't, I'd have to come to Portugal and cut the shark off the bottom of your boat and bring it home as a trophy.

VaBuckeye—

Did you go to OSU??? My dad's a Buckeye.

As for heeling, cruising catamarans are pushing it if they're heeling 10˚s, if you get them to do more, you will soon find out how hard they are to flip back over once they capsize.

Trimarans will heel about 15˚ when being sailed hard, but any more than that, you're again heading for a capsize. That said, it is pretty difficult to flip a cruising multihull.
