Yesterday was the first time I saw the Wild Cat. Wow what a beauty. I just can't get it out of my mind. Of course I'd only be using it for recreation so it would be a total waste but wow. What a great boat. I'm in love.

If you have fun recreation sailing ,the wildcat is a lot of fun also

Most of the time we are recreation sailing and a 10-15 clubraces a year (with other cats like F18,s Nacra 570 ,A cats ,and H16,s Texel rating handicap )

The only thing is a lot of more ropes/trimming than a H 16 to pull and trim and figure out how it works to go fast

Damned typos. I wonder when they'll be out on the used market. Seems like with the 16s they are their own worst competition given depreciation of the new ones. It is a beautiful boat and I can see in some of the videos how nice they work in lighter weather. $22K is a high price but I guess that's what it takes to get state of the art.
