Goodby Charles

I just got word that Charles Chiodi, founder of Multihulls Magazine passed away yesterday. For decades he was the center of gravity of multihulls. A quirky but tireless advocate. He really gve me my start when I created my 30′ performance trimaran design in 1983 I think it was. Nobody else was thinking that tight forestays were needed to go to windward. I had a kind of seastay inside the hull. Charles was intrigued and gave me a couple of pages as I recall. Was all rock and roll from there.
Keep a tight forestay Charles as you sail on.
