    Well this much I agree with you on, I'm sure the multihulls will pay much more attention to their manual power configurations in future and may go with a crew of four rather than three to have two shifts of rowers/pedallers. The race results over previous editions indicate that on average a sailing multihull with some form of manual propulsion is the preferable option given the mix of conditions that the racers experience, that doesn't mean that a monohull can't win the race just that they need a specific set of conditions to do so.
