A Photo & Discussion Forum for Wharram Design Enthusiasts
I have written an article about handling Wharram Catamarans in severe weather conditions. The article covers such techniques as running off, towing drogues, lying a hull, heaving to, and lying to a parachute sea anchor. It provides examples of a number of Wharram sailors experiences.
I have learnt much from this research and hope that it will be a catalyst for further discussion on this forum so that we can all continue to benefit from others experiences.
I would like to thank all those who have contributed.
The article is published online and can be viewed here.

A very interesting piece of work. Thanks for sharing it with us!
Thanks for your efforts; I definitely don't want to re-invent the "wheel" should I ever find myself in 50' seas! ;~)
Why thank you Don. A lot of work and a great resource.

All the best wishes to APATIKI
Hi Don, we haven't met but I wanted to thank you for compiling this awesome, free, publication. It played a part of my involvement with the Tiki 38 Luckyfish and continues to inspire other Wharram wannabees. Thanks !
