I received this email from Cris Trace today, who helped me sail the CATRI 24 between Sweden and Holland on the delivery voyage from Latvia to England. It speaks volumes of the CATRI 24.
>>I was out yesterday on development Cat'. 39' which is thought to be the fastest yacht in Cape Town, the Volvo open 60's only arrive next week! However, this had much the same feel as the Catri 24' but only half the stability! at 20 kts I was releasing the main sheet frequently to stop us turning turtle, and that in 25 kts of wind. I tell you once on a Catri your yachting thrills are ruined forever!<<
