It's time to prepare for next year’s sailing season.

Now that the sailing season is winding down or has wound down for most of us its time to think about boat maintenance. Help preserve your Corsair trimaran's gel coat by giving it a thorough waxing and buffing. This protects the gel coat from further deterioration (oxidization) and will pay dividends when eventually (perish the thought) its time to sell your boat. Also take the time to “winterize” your Corsair trimaran's motor--which at the very least means flushing out any residual salt water... Read More »

Multihull vs Monohull Advantages

What are the key differences between catamarans and trimarans? Here are the basics: Level Sailing The most noticeable thing about sailing a catamaran or trimaran vs a traditional monohull is the lack of heeling. Even when powered up, a cat or tri will rarely heel more than 5-10 degrees before it’s time to reef. Gone are the days of bracing yourself in the cockpit, and living your life underway at 20+ degrees of angle. It’s a much more relaxing and convenient way to sail. No question about that....

Planing with Friends!

                          We are planing in about 20 knots of wind. Everyone is as far aft as possible to keep the bow up, but still, the transom is a bit out of the water. Monica is playing the jib, Bill (red jacket) is trimming the spin (our spin sheet goes through two auto-ratchet blocks and then once around the cabin-top winch), and Evan is calling the layline and traffic for the coming gybe. — Ross Stein, Monica, Evan Freedman, and William Pace in Berkley, California, USA   Read More »
