Couldn't resist trying to bait you augaug
Would the Bravo do better with one or two people? ....
The Bravo is much slower with two adults, but it's also much tougher to tip. The problem with the Bravo in high winds, (and this is why I'll eventually move to a boat like the Wave) is that its just so narrow for a cat, there's only so much you can to do keep the hull down in heavy winds.
I've raced a windsurfer, (who's skill isn't Olympic level, to state it mildly) and in very light winds, he's quicker. In fairly strong winds I'm quicker, but in very
strong winds on certain points of sail, I struggle to keep the hull down, where he can just lean way back and fly.
If I had a boat like a Wave, I've got a seven foot beam, instead of 4 and a half. That allows the sailor to keep more pressure outside of the boat. I can't see setting up a trapeze on a Bravo.... but I've thought about it.
So yeah, two people in VERY strong winds would keep the boat level, and allow you to sail in stronger winds than you could sail solo. I can always reef the sail, but what's the fun in that?
