OK I must say I am. or was a mono hull guy... I have been looking and sailing on corsairs
I was looking to buy one but right now my student loans are first and are in the way!! So I am looking at hobies now.. so I will not be wanting to flip a cat because I prefer to stay on the boat. Is there a techniques to not flip these boats and just have a fun safe fast ride? I know if the wind pics yup there is more chance I don't think I would care. If it was just me but like on a mono in storms like 20 and up. In knots. I would have to pop the main sheet. So I'm sure I might have to keep it in hand all the time..???

I have not flipped my 21SE in at least a decade.Mainly because I am careful and don't want to break my windvane that is mounted on top of the mast.And also because I usually sail solo.This big boat can handle the wind. 8)
