A catamaran is inherently more stable than a monohull yacht and the motion that causes sea sickness is far less acute because of its stability. The two hulls act as a buffer, reducing the rocking motion and if the sails are up as well, the boat will be even more stable due to the lateral pressure of the wind. In addition, we monitor the weather, the wave heights and the wind and do our best not to go out if conditions are choppy to the extent they would cause sea sickness.

In the mornings, the sea is often flat and we motor along smooth water until the wind picks up for us to raise the sails as the day progresses.
