Been here for a wile but just got on also just started sailing school
here in MDR.
I always knew I would love it but never knew how much, I just went on my first sail and fell in love with it(I am glad i followed my gut feeling about sailing).
Hopefully will reach my goal before too long(40-45 ft cat).
I was however Sl discouraged by my sailing instructor that said that(your opinions please) cats are just no good for our part of the world due to global winds they cant sail the same direction( i think he talked about up wind
direction) or as effective as mono`s and therefore really limited .
I told him that i read somewhere that having dagger-boards helps with that
He said that dagger-boards have nothing to do with ability of direction only with depth
Can someone shed some light for me please.?
Also it will be nice to have a southern ca chapter for cats owners and lovers.
