2012: HC16+spi is chosen
2013: 40 nations are competing ont the ISAF HC16 circuit (and that + kitesurf permit sailing to stay in the Olympic games that need to be worldwide, not only old countries)
2014: Multihull world ask (loudly just see this forum ;-) for a second Olympic cat , an open one (2 men)
2015: first proto of AC20 full carbon, wings, curved dagger, camera on board. After the AC45:AC72 media big circus, ISAF an CIO are very interested.
2015: ISAF decide there will be a second cat for the 2020 games.
2016: a korean couple is Olympic Champion on HC16 (just have a look to the last HC16 Championship in China.

Only a scenario, they may be better one.
The choice of HC16 is obvious to increase the practice our sport in the world.
For big regatta , as for the HC16 world, boats are provide by the factory and they change every race randomly allocated.

The meat on the cat is more important than the plastic.

Also just for fun, I organise a first poll in october on the french site: www.catamag.fr
A second is running (I find this one after launching mine), interesting to compare results and trend.

Any idea how the actual evaluation takes place? Any of it public or is it smoked filled rooms, strange cabals replete with incantations and blood rituals.

Don't forget the spankings.

Olympic Trials: "Come for the sailing, stay for the spankin's"
Sounds like a winner of a slogan to me.


I'm boatless.

I like the F16s. Doesn't matter to me who makes it, I like the Viper, the Falcon and the Nacra (I'm partial to Nacra's F16 because I like the hull shapes). I wish Hobie made an F16. I think the F16 fits perfect for ISAF needs (baring any Brazil swindling). The recent regatta at Thailand show how strong the F16 platform is.

I also want to get back into cat sailing (don't like the curved foil stuff going on... for no real reason, other than I think it's complicating the daggers). I owned and sailed-to-death a Hobie16. It was fun while it lasted. I don't ever want another H16 and am relieved that the F16 is growing in popularity. I got into windsurfing because I didn't want another H16 (and there was nothing better in the 80s-90s). The F16 is a hit because my wife doesn't sail and ALL my sailing friends got married and or disappeared.

Hoping for an F16 win!
