There was a recent thread discussing cats for juniors. Take a look at the Dragoon video at www.hobiecangas2006.com/ing/framecont.htm Its in the downloads section and you will need to turn off the world Champs Anthem!!!
My youngest son is in it on his boat.

Proper cat sailing too!

Super video! I have to agree, I wish I was doing that at 13, and I wish I was doing it now! Looks like a great boat to learn spin on!

Perhaps it's the kids or weight or something - but does that boat looks to be a little pitch pole prone?

Wonderful Youth Vid...

We have a Dragoon here at FWYC. Fun boat and a great way for our youth (and some of us NOT so young) to learn how to manage a Asym spinnaker.

It is a little prone to pitching. You have to REALLY keep on top of that leeward bow. But, even with that added 'stress', it is still a fun ride.

I agree with all who wishes they were doing this at 13...I have been into sailing/racing for about 15 years, so of course my son (14 now) has been doing it his whole life. It is a great activity for kids...boats, sun, water...what could be better?

Yes Jake, the bows will disappear if you are not careful. The Dragoon is not a tame learner boat, it is pretty lively as the breeze picks up. This is why the kids get a buzz out of learning to sail it properly. It is the National junior catamaran in the UK.
The boys doing the sailing were told to crash and burn a bit to spice things up for the camera.

If crashing and burning wasn't a distinct possibility, I don't think it would be as attractive to kids.
