Before cats the monos raced closer together, using traditional tactics that any of us can use in racing
. And we admired their excellence in these nearly hand to hand combats. Superb camera
shots of both boats in the frame.
With cats we got a drag race
situation. Reach off at lightspeed, don't care where the other boat
is and he's so far away you can't cover or starboard tack him at the mark. I lost
I suspect we will continue to have cat-like races if they go to foils. Thats because each boat
will have a very different point at which it starts foiling and getting on foil will be the priority rather than tactics.
Short of seeing a spectacular crash, it will be boring.
