Different Design Philosophies

Catana 40S (39.5) and Leopard 38'. Not sure who did the Leopard, as I can't remember the year it was made, but my Catana is old enough to be a Crowther.

I've had the privilege to be both on a 38 Leopard and Catana 40S....

I'll take the Catana please!

Re: Different design philosophies

It is like oranges and apples. One built in (?) France, the other in (?) RSA. How many RSA designed cats win round the world races?

But; as long as each put to its designed-in use, they should do equally fine.
