WOW .... That is "Gunboat" performance for a early 90's Privilege with a declared heavier displacement, I can't count on those figures and I bet I am lighter and have much more sail area.....

As Paul Keating would say " thats a nice set of numbers".
Sailing at 16 knts, at 160 - 200 AWA ( average 180 so basically you are running square) with 25 knots AWS, therefore TWS is 41 knts right up the clacker.

a/ how did you get the 1.5 oz kite set in one piece with huey howling at 41 knots.
and b/ how the hell did you get it down. With a shotgun maybe?

If you have "mid teens performance with at least 20 kts AWS..." "carrying a 1.5 oz assymetrical alone at 25 kts AWS and 160 - 200 AWA --" then you're carrying WAY TOO MUCH sail for conditions. That would put true wind above 35kts. If you round up or get spun or stuff your bows going down a wave you're flirting with capsize risk.

If that's typical you lack good judgment, IMHO. I wouldn't carry a spinnaker on a cruising boat in more than 20 knots true, especially without having the main up to be able to blanket the spinnaker (so it can more easily be taken down if the wind builds.

Re: Privilege Performance

It's a shame this good thread ended there... I was quite keen to find out who decided on what.... and also to see if anyone had new experience of Series 5 performance...?

Re: Privilege Performance

They are not "as slow as they look." Privilege makes a fine cat. If you want the speed and pointing ability, you want daggerboards and a different cat; but Privilege has struck a great compromise, IMO, between Catana and Lagoon.

Re: Privilege Performance

If I'm honest I'm kind of torn between series 5 and Xquisite... Ideally nearly new (2-4yrs). Just need to sell a property or find someone willing to take a beach house in Thailand as part payment.

Believe it or not, Privilege produced a few of their cats with daggerboards. I believe it was an option sometime in the 90's.

Re: Privilege Performance

Cycrille Tricot joined Privelege from Catana last year so maybe we'll see dagger boards as an option again.

Re: Privilege Performance

Let's wait and see.. personally I prefer not to have them. The extra work whilst sailing, the weight, the worry about forgetting to bring them up and just knowing how to benefit from them are all (imo) not great things but I find the impact on space inside is the worst thing about them... You seem to have to get to 52+ft to be able to have hulls wide enough for them without losing too much space.

Re: Privilege Performance

I like them but agree they are not an added option. In effect the whole boat has to be designed around them and they take up a lot of space.
