I sail a Hobie 16 in a club in West Yorkshire, Grimwith sailing club, and have the same problem. Very few cats and loads of Vortex's!!
They have me down as a handicap of 807. I can beat some of them if its blowing hard but I have to nearly lap them.
I have more fun just blasting them down the reaches and racing the rescue boat, as there is now way I can be competetive. We have been labled "the entertainment" especialy when the wind is blowing F5+.
I will keep checking the measages to see if anyone has a solution.

You are not alone Nick

Good luck in your quest
