Bought my Getaway in March and have been out 4 times in mild winds, usually with 4 or 5 people. Yesterday, was out in moderate winds by myself and really got to experience the acceleration. What a great boat! This is my first multihull and my only complaint is that it my lake is now too small due to the speed of the boat.

I sail on a little lake in the Philadelphia suburbs. Not sure what the wind was blowing, maybe 10-12. Still learning how to sail the boat and having fun doing it.

10/12 knots solo, and the boat is great!
15/20 knots with 2 persons, the boat is great, with 3 it is good. With 4 the boat moves fast, but you feel the difference.

And yes, you need long bodies of waters, because, when it starts moving, you just don't want to stop :D
