I voted #3 Imoca 60 because it is a monohull.
Definitely multis are faster and for us armchair sailors it is more convenient.

However in real life real seamanship are monohulls which are used by 99.9 of worlds sailors.I and most of world sailors we are furious of the choice of multihulls for America's Cup.

I have not yet read the website regarding the Rhum race; but presume that since we are being offered several choices.. that there are classes for the race.
I also see that one of the choices we have is the "Rhum class" and would presume we would sail the same as the "real deal".
Is there actually much point in not doing this; otherwise all we are doing is sailing our own race ????????

Hey Damir,
I do not agree. Let's not forget that this is a singlehanded race. And if you want to race these monstrous multihulls at the limit, singlehanded you really need a lot of seamanship. It is like racing the 24hr of Le Mans with a F1-car and a single driver !!!
But I would like to sail both classes in the game if possible. They are both interesting and need a different approach. If I had to choose one I would go for the multihull.

Dear all,

for me sailing a monohull (preferably an IMOCA60) is completely different from sailing a multihull. So it would be great to have one monohull race and one multihull race.

If I'm urged to choose only one I would take an IMOCA60 as a "classical" single handed boat.

Fair winds to all
Juergen
