Episode 16 of The Sailing Podcast is part 2 of my conversation with Multihull Designer Jim Brown. In this interview Jim shares his passion for the latest innovations in hydrofoil design –and also lets us know about his project to record and catalogue the history of Multihulls and the people who designed and sailed them – this is what he refers to as ‘the lore’.
Jim also discusses his own interview series called “Multihull Conversations with Jim Brown”

I would like to thank Jim Brown for taking the time to talk to me and for sharing the great information you have about Multihulls and their development over the past 50 years. If you would like to contact Jim his email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
I would also like to thank everyone listening – thank you for being a part of the show and I hope that you will join me again next episode. I have an interview with Captain David Ryan from Montauk in New York – David is building a Wharram design 38′ Tiki catamaran at the moment and we talked about some of the challenges of building your own boat and how he went from building smaller yachts to now taking on a 38 foot catamaran.
Can anyone guess how fast this catamaran is going once it gets up?
Here is a great update on the Americas Cup and where it is heading. This would be a great provider to subscribe to:
