Multihull Seamanship

Hi, I own a Voyage 430 catamaran, I need an instructional DVD on how to sail a large cat. Can you help? Thank you,

Hi Keith: I can’t point you to anything specific to cats, but the sail trim issues are much the same between mono and multi-hulls. There are differences in anchoring techniques, and of course handling under power since you’ve got twin engines. Regards, Steve Dashew

PS – For heavy weather tactics you might want to look at our Surviving the Storm which has a detailed chapter on multihull tactics.
