Catamaran Sailing Video

Some sailing towards St. Augustine to take shelter while en-route to the Med from Ft. Lauderdale. Tropical storm Anna made things interesting.
Outremer 55 catamaran Ma Bete.

That is a great video. It got me watching a couple others posted on youtube. In one they had a fairly big following sea and it made me wonder why someone doesn't design a droge which can be trailed but not deployed until needed. Like the cone is inverted until a larger then normal wave threatens to pitch pole you and then you release the cone.

Yes, a mounted fast deploy bag would be useful when it gets nasty

I met and spoke with the owner a while back.. he doesn't have a drogue... He said "Ma Bette" is fast enough to sit on the face of a wave and just go with it.. It only gets hairy when you are approaching land and have to find and get between the buoys.. his words not mine..

That was wild, i was thinking may be a Drogue based on a "Bambi Bucket" Helicopter firefighting collapsible bucket.
They have a pilot controlled dump valve which is used to close the buckets bottom on filling and releasing in metered amounts or dumping quickly,,,this could act as a controllable brake could it not??

She is also quite fast enough to surf down that same wave and plow into the one ahead.

Personally, I don't like being offshore aboard a multihull w/out a drogue. Out-of-control fast down the face of wave is not fun! Been there -- done that. Pitch-poling a beach cat can be fun -- pitch-poling a 55 foot cat -- not likely to be fun.

I like the idea of a controllable drogue -- this way it is ready to be engaged very quickly. Multis surf much easier than monos and can catch you off guard sometimes with sudden break into a surf. No way you can deploy a conventional drogue that quickly w/out huge amounts of shock-loading. It would be handy to able to apply some well controlled drag very quickly.
