“They” SAY THIS IS THE WORST SAIL ON A CATAMARAN?
Beating upwind is never anyone’s favorite point sail. It’s called BEATING for a reason and it’s a beating no matter what kind of boat you are on. The critics will tell you catamarans can’t sail upwind. And to some degree (pun intended), depending on the boat, they are correct.
Today we have a 60-nautical-mile sail. It’s upwind the entire way from Fakarava to Tahanea and we’re aboard a 55ft performance catamaran. This the critics will say, makes for an even rougher ride because performance boats are built for speed, not comfort. But again, it all depends on the boat, and there is only one true way to judge any boat. You have to sail it!
So join us as we head out to sea and explore another ring of coral out here in the Tuamotus! And at the end of our beating, we’re rewarded with a dive that has more fish life than we’ve ever seen! 🤯
