Catamarans Forced to Jibe in High Winds?  Bottom

Go to page [-1] 1 - 2:

  • Weta Trimaran - never a problem taking or gybing in any winds (central daggerboard tacks like a monohull).

    I've raced in winds gusting over 35 knots, capsized and got it back up again in 5 minutes without assistance (undo float port, flood float, weight on daggerboard, climb in, sail off, float empties, lean back and redo float port).

    Fun. Fast. Easy icon_smile
  • Owner's manual nails it. You should be able to tack in winds up to at least 20. Start close hauled, carry momentum, wait until the jib backwinds to move your weight.

    In very choppy water, a big piece of chop can sometimes kill your momentum and you will have to try again.
