CATBOAT GUIDE and SAILING MANUAL


Language: english
Author: Edward Steinfeld
Genre: Guide
Format: PDF
Quality: eBook
Description: These boats can be slower than other less beamy boats on certain points of sail.
Can’t be raced against sloops fairly, without some attention to the handicap ratings.
The vessel will be very hard to right if capsized (although capsizing is somewhat more difficult to achieve).
Less sail redundancy. Most catboats only have one mainsail and generally no extras. Whereas, sloops, ketches,
schooners, yawls, etc., carry at least a main and a headsail or two, providing redundancy should one sail fail.
In smaller catboats, the cockpit is so large that getting pooped could be disastrous.
Due to the one single large sail, the skipper must understand the need to reef earlier before the winds and the sail
become unmanageable. Many skippers don’t care to reef and this can turn into a dangerous situation.
Catboats are frequently known to have heavy weather helm.
Most catboats have low freeboard with a curvaceous sheer line.
