Thumbs up Cats are just too slow for racing

Here's some great footage of the first boat to finish Fyn Cup 2009 here in DK:


You can probably guess what they're yelling, even though it is in Danish..


Btw. It's a Tri...

Then they immediately shrug it off and head off on their way.

How fast?

Slow like a rocket...I wonder how fast they were going?

My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the morning and I go to bed at night. In between, I occupy myself as best I can.

I don't know exactly how fast they were going at that time, but my guess is a tad above 20 knots.
Jens Quorning of Dragonfly trimarans was actually leading the race in another Tri (Orbit) until he grounded it, and damaged it. Orbit does not have an echo sounder because its too heavy (I'm not kidding you)

Btw the first production boat to finish Fyn Cup was a Dragonfly 28. We had great weather this year - 30+ knots for long periods.

20 MPH ain't fast unless, you do it in a 1000sq 3/2 house on 10foot waves

They don't. At least compared to the mono's in the same weather
But it was on its way to somersault or pitchpole - Or rather sail itself to the bottom

i2f, what a beautiful picture. Sorry for slamming cats, and promoting tri's
Btw I own a monohull, but I'm also a little skizo, so love to sail multi's too
