I sail cats because I won't take second best.

yes...stay away from cats....??...the're evil.
Flat wide comfortable swim platform. opposite sex enjoy them.
Cover a lot of ground.
Never fall over when you let then go at the beach with the sail up. Unless you have a moron moment.

Getting sick of speed is just isn't right.

Making a cat manouver is an art, not an impossiblity.
When you go blazing past a mono with your "don't go near cats" mates on it, you will understand. They are slow, you are not. Like being a bird of prey amongst pidgeons.
We all know here that monos are fun and worthwhile sailing experiences and don't pretend they are not, but....
Try the cat, if you don't like it go back to if....

By the way, jepardy makes life, speed etc fun. Pitchpole is jepardy. When you have spent a fast day out in 20/25 and been on the verge all day with the bow tracing on the limit and the sea has not caught you out..When the boat takes off so fast you only manage not to fall out the back because your foot is caught in the strap.....
Let's face it, you are bored where you are or you would not ask....Your mates don't want you to break ranks....there are good people on the dark side too, feel the force and trust what you see.....
