Adaero,

It sounds as it these gentlemen deployed their para's from one bow, rather than a bridle. Unless the wind direction has shifted dramatically from the direction of the sea, I can't think of any other reason a cat would want to lie beam to, while on a para-anchor. From what I've read, a series drogue deployed from the stern is a viable alternative to a para.

My question to the boat skipper would be " how much weight did you have on the line."
I can suspect if too much then the boat could find itself yawing a lot.

Some of you old timers here have probably read this already or visited the website... but I found his discussion of Storm Management on a 30ish CAT very interesting... have a look at the adventures of "Exit-Only" on the maxingout.com website...

Cheers

Yes, I found his discussion to make perfect sense regardless of boat type - mono or multi or whatever.
