Re: Cat in 10-15' seas with around 3-4 second period

The crew in the red "hoody" seems to be enjoying themselves.

I take it the still of the gauge showing 53.9 knots was the boatspeed
cause I have my doubts as to THAT headsail surviving that windsped for very long.

Re: Cat in 10-15' seas with around 3-4 second period

that video has a part I with a knock down
in part I the two steering stations are battling each other for control --no one seems to have heard of taking the sails in.
but what gets me is the look on the face of the girl on the RHS of the frame.

Re: Cat in 10-15' seas with around 3-4 second period

Sometimes we just need to get somewhere. Here's a video of our Oyster 53 doing the same thing as the catamaran in similar conditions. Not as rough a ride and a little easier to make headway, but again... sometimes we need to motor directly into 35 knots to get into port in a timely manner to avoid worsening situations.

Re: Cat in 10-15' seas with around 3-4 second period

I'm curious as to in what universe physics holds water together while forming waves that are 10-15' in height, with a 3-4sec period? Since it surely isn't on Earth, nor in this one.
And many of the rest of the 'observations' on the conditions, 'seamanship', etc. herein are also speci-FICTION as well. As in akin to science... fiction.

Re: Cat in 10-15' seas with around 3-4 second period

Hi All

A regular visitor to the form, seldom posting. First time ever where I felt the need to comment on the negativity of comments on a post. Unless I missed first parts of posts etc. the video of the cat is clearly an attempt to get into a restricted area and he is forced to have that angle against waves and wind. Why so negative, here is a sailor clearly trying to do the best under circumstances he was the best to evaluate at the time (he was on the yacht!). Same goes for the guys on the monohull, clearly they are young and have a long learning curve, provide them with positive suggestions!

They are motoring into port (videographer is on land) and taking it slow for a more comfortable ride, or being cautious entering an idlet, or both. Pretty straightforward.

That's basically what this forum consists of. A very few sailors posting their experience, and an awful lot of keyboard sailors (the kind of people who don't say what boat they own, because they don't own one) criticising everything they do.

Looks like that to me too, near head to wind and near port...cat or mono is mostly irrelevant in that case...dont see what the big flap is about.

Seems like a tide over wind situation at an inlet to me.

This may not be relevant due to the fact that he was motoring into port, but shouldn't a cat normally be taking those waves at a 45 degree angle to avoid pitch poling?
