RACING MULTIHULLS IN THE 80's

Although cruising multis have been built and sailed for decades in British Columbia, it was not until the beginning of 1980's that an increased number of racing multihulls came on the scene that serious organized racing began with the advent of the Western Multihull Association (WMA.)
I would like to dedicate this site to Bruce Campbell, a pioneer in multihull sailing on the West Coast.
The first of the new breed of cats was Wayne Gorrie's Solar Heat.
Martyn Bridgman"s NANDI is a fast Newick design.
Karl Uthoff's Cat has gone through many name and design changes.
Peacock Roett's Hot Sauce could be seen from miles away.
Pierre Vaissade's Santispac could point quite high on a windward leg.
