From that other Forum (where there seems to be a total lack of Moderation).
Some facts from my young son suggest that the boat tripped over one of the boards. Another post said the gemini
can be scary 70 degrees of the wind/beam sea because it is possible to lift
with the leeward board down and sailed hard. Keep the windward board down and the gemini
apparently behaves fine even sailed hard. I would suggest low aspect ratio keels are the domain of true cruising cat. The gemini and other similiar catamarans with boards require more care.
As often stated by me and many others, sailing with the windward board down is relatively safe, the lee board is stupidity that requires very quick right first time action by the helm
and crew to avoid a capsize
. AmericA's cup crew can be caught out, for a day sailing skipper
- well I don't mind if he's solo - Oh, and not passing upwind of me.
