The most aggressive looking cat platform has to be the Cirrus R. It might not be pretty but it seems to work very well. It would have the flattest bottom profile of any cat so far launched. Its advanced rocker profile is more pronounced forward than other designs so that should see it ride ‘bow up’ when pushed hard by the spinnaker.
When floating it seems to hardly be in the water at all. That job is left purely to the super high aspect foils. During the first day of racing Mischa was unfortunately pinged with a black flag so had to carry a lot o fpoints on the first day of Eurocat. Results will tell so we’ll know more about it this evening after the prize presentation.
For sure the top ten in the F18 fleet will be Hobie, Nacra, Cirrus and Darren Bundock on the C2. Still I think the Cirrus R wins in the design department… It looks like it means business.
