Rates: • €38 per hour What To Expect Onboard: Boat Weights The initial minimum boat weight was 315 lbs / 142.9 kg. Hull durability quickly proved to be an issue, and the while the class rules still stated “315 lb minimum weight” until 2000, there were no boats built to that weight. There were few boats that weighed less than 340 lbs, and many were significantly heavier, especially the white powder coated aluminum “Formula” boats of the early ’90s. In 2001, the minimum weight in the class rules was raised to 330 lbs / 149.7 kg, which more accurately reflected the boat’s construction. Competitive boat weight is 330 – 350 lbs. Sailing Characteristics The 17 is a heavy air machine. The added leverage of the wings for trapezing makes the 17 go upwind like no other catamaran, and the main is easily depowered with a 6:1 downhaul, the mast rotator, 2:1 outhaul and a 7:1 mainsheet. Downwind, the boat is pitchpole resistant (not “proof”) and a bit underpowered, which makes working the waves a high priority. Downwind, the boat is sailed at 90° to the apparent wind. The 17 is uncomfortable to race in under 7 knots of breeze, since most of the time you’ll be sitting on the forward wing tube. Weight is kept as far foward as possible while keeping the bow tips out of waves and to keep from pitchpoling. In very light air downwind, racers will often stand out on the bow, holding on to the bridle wire to keep the sterns out of the water. Raising the windward rudder downwind is a common practice.
