2015 Corsair Nationals - High PHRF Class Report

Thank you Team SnowFox for reporting on the high PHRF class! This was absolutely an exciting start to the 3 days of racing ahead of us. As we headed out to the G 145 start line on a forecasted light to medium day we found ourselves bouncing in rolling white caps as we entered the start area. I saw then I had not dressed well for the morning as it was a little wetter and cooler than I thought it would be.  Start line was a mite skewed to the RC end making it almost a single point start, but we...

Innovative New Ring Frame Design Clever solutions to difficult problems are evident throughout the Pulse 600 design. None more so than the carbon-fiber ring frame that’s literally at the heart of this ground-breaking new sailing machine.

This is a perfect place for a strong, elegant design to efficiently pass loads through the hull, and... Read More »

Development Update #6 on the Pulse 600

Mast & Boom The mast and boom will be aluminum. The cost differential to go to carbon on a boat this size vs. the performance gain does not add up and we want to keep that boat as affordable as possible whilst maintaining a high level of performance.  Rudders & Dagger Board Both the rudders and dagger board are composite boards and both are retractable. In the up position, the dagger board will sit just under the boom and in the down position will be neatly out of the way and flush with... Read More »

        The Pulse 600 features: - Carbon reinforced beams (supporting the floats) - A Full carbon ring frame - A carbon reinforced back beam  With these 6 high load components, we transition all the major forces on the boat as the torsional loads are transferred through the beams and onto the ring frame and back beam. Likewise, the mast is mounted directly onto the ring frame and the main-sheet track onto the back beam.  With the major loads taken care of using the high cost/high strength... Read More »
