18ft cat vs 18 ft trimaran showdown (Full video) 

coverfullToday was probably the best sailing day this year. For the first time we raced my 18 ft A-Cat vs 18 ft trimaran. We started out with two frozen boats, but in the sun it felt like any Swedish summer day :-). I installed one action cam on each boat, plus some mobiles. Now you can compare 18ft cat vs 18 ft tri.
In the light wind, the tri felt faster as long as the A cat had both hull in the water. When it was more wind and was flying on one full, the trimaran lost the fight.

Speed certificate

Today I got my official “speed certificate” (LYS-tal) for my home built boat. 1.52, and its one of the 1% fastest official rated sailing boats in Sweden 🙂 Rated just little faster than a 49:er, and little little faster than Hobie Cat 18

Refined Design

Outlaw_Updated_jib

After one round-the-island race, and two club race, I feel I need more sails.

First thing a need is a bigger jib. Both it will give more speed in lower wind and also better balace to the boat. My design of putting the mast really far back, causes the boat turn up against win pretty easy. When its lots of wind, bot get really good speed, 10-12knt and then the balance is great, but when going slower, it feels like I need the jib further forward and a bigger one.

Downwind, the “temporary” small Code0, is waaaay too small. Maybe a 15 sqr m code or gennacker would fit bettter. BUT, for this the boat needs to be strengthen a bit. May be for next season. Right now I’m looking for a 5-6 sqr m jibb to try out, and I think I have found one that could be perfect

Great Hassel Island Race

On the way home…, it was little madness. The rudder did not have a hatch, and when boat was going faster than 12 knot, the rudder folded up, and it was not possible to stear the boat. See for your self 🙂
