Sailing a Cat Ketch specifically

Hi All,

Is there any literature out there that discussed techniques and/or differences for sailing a cat ketch vs a sloop? I realized hands on is the best but just thought I'd pick y'all's brains.

Thank You,

Hello Guero,

I added to the Documentation section a writeup Garry Hoyt made on Cat Ketch sail handling. This document was written with wishbone booms in mind but will apply to conventional booms as well. For me, the sections " Windward Trim" and "In General" are the most useful.


Happy sailing.
