Thanks John. I guess the question then is what happened to the Multihull Commission. Documentation looks a little light here - http://www.sailing.org/committees/2009-2012/26304.php

Can you shed some light? Sorry if this has been covered before. I've been kind of out of the loop for a while.

With all respect, I disagree with you Tom. Imo, the problem lies with us, the catamaran sailors. We put up with poor representation and leadership. We need to find common ground and move forward without regard to IOC, ISAF or USS.

We have "battered wife" syndrome: this is the way it's always been so we don't expect any different. Just like the battered wife, the first time it happened it was "his" fault; thereafter it is the victim's fault.

We've never been welcome inside official sailing, the history goes all the way back to Hershoff and Amaryllis . If that culture was going to change, it would have changed by now.

I agree with you on that, but my response was to the post 2 before mine in which it was asked whether the greater issue was with the IOC or ISAF. I still believe it is ISAF. As far as our responsibilty goes, that has always been an issue. It probably reaches back to the beach cat mentality that our side of the sport came up with. These days though with all of the organized racing that happens around the country on multihulls, we should be able to better support our growth and build a system to encourage and foster younger sailors along. Here is the link to the full ISAF report. http://www.sailing.org/32708.php http://www.sailing.org/tools/documents/OlympicCommissionDraftReportMay2010-[8851].pdf

Price is mostly a function of size and rules. The boat doesn't have to be as I say, it just has to be atractive for TV, simple and inexpensive. I guess a smaller A Class with spi would serve, but this is just an opinion.
