Re: Catamaran Knocked Down Near St George Island

Should note I may have a misperception but think the current trend in increasing the roach on the mains on cats is potentially a weak spot. The broadblues have huge mains. Its progenitor the Prout 39 had a tiny blade main and mostly depended on its two headsails for drive. Although under 45 it was known as a great seaboat.
