Yes, there I was thinking you'd actually said something positive about multihulls, but it turns out it was someone else.

Thanks for correcting me.

BTW, how about the polars for the mono that can sail upwind faster than the AC72 cat's? I'd love to see them.

I guess that in what regards sailing multi50, Mod70 or ultimate trimarans with more than 100ft we are all armchair sailors.

Some have just more information than others. I have been following these races and the development of racing boats, including top racing trimarans for the last 20 years. Cats too, till they were definitively surpassed by trimarans in what regards ocean racing.

No he hasn't - he's still wriggling around the question.

But I infer that the answer is "None whatsoever in any sized multihull"
