180 Marine in San Diego with the Pulse 600

San Diego... where blue skies keep watch over 70 miles of majestic coastline and gentle Mediterranean climate and friendly locals create a welcoming vibe. Out on Point Loma on Shelter Island, we had 3 fabulous days showing off the Pulse 600. Families, couples, and single dudes came out to see and test sail this incredibly versatile folding trimaran. The boat is stable enough to be left afloat folded up in a single slip, which many owners do in between sailing sessions to make getting underway... Read More »

Rusty, or just dusty? no problem

The Corsair Nationals are competitive, but also family oriented, and put a big emphasis on getting to know everyone involved in the Corsair community.  The event organisers want you to know that sailors of all skill levels are welcome.  In some cases that means you might be transitioning from a monohull, and it may be easier than you think!  And at the Nationals you can gain knowledge from a huge number of friendly sailors. This year the regatta will hold a special one day Speed Clinic hosted by... Read More »

Pulse 600...responsive balanced helm, quick tacks and clean gybes

  Story by Ross Stein...San Francisco Bay — Giacomo Bassi, a foreign exchange student from Milan, is driving Pulse #49. We were making a steady 13 knots going to weather, against the flood, in about 12-14 kits of breeze in a flat water. A dinghy and mono sailor who had never stepped on tri, he instantly got in the groove, sailing her flawlessly through multiple tacks and gybes, hitting 15 kt on a close spin reach. The responsive balanced helm, quick tacks and clean gybes, open uncluttered... Read More »

We have remarkable sailors in our Pulse fleets

  You know what I’m talking about…these are the men, women, and juniors who are talented in ways that are difficult to express, and they tend to be the leaders who are selfless about helping other sailors get better and build their fleets. An example is Bob Webbon, who owns Pulse #27 out of Houston, along with Martin Hamilton. Bob is a former class president for the A-Class Catamarans and he competes all over the country. This year he heads up A-Class District 4, and we’re so fortunate to have... Read More »

Experience a Pulse on the Bay!

SAUSALITO — This new 20-foot model has the same well-engineered structure for folding the amas as the original Corsair, as well as a gin pole and tackle to raise the mast. The boat is also stable enough to be left afloat folded up, which many owners do in between sailing sessions to make getting underway that much easier.   Then there's the boat's performance. In moderate winds, the Pulse 600 is slippery and a joy to knock around in. In strong winds, the boat will be a veritable adrenaline... Read More »

Sailing the Pulse 600 in Amsterdam

Today i had the pleasure of meeting up with the team from Nibor Marine at their dock space on lake Ijsselmeer, just outside of Amsterdam. The births on lake Ijsselmeer are quite narrow, only allowing narrow beamed monohulls under normal circumstances. For the Pulse, this was not an issue. We simply folded one beam to fit the nimble trimaran through the pylons, unfolded and then off we went for a great day on the water high speed trimaran sailing. When we left the dock the winds were quite light... Read More »

This year's Aspen Open Regatta did not disappoint!

  We sailed the Pulse 600 all weekend on a windy mountain lake, it performed very well… a real adrenaline generator and no knockdowns. Can’t say that about the J22s, or the U20’s. On the Pulse 600 going upwind, the high volume leeward float never looked like it would bury itself or create excessive drag. Gusts up to 41 knots, often steady at 20-25, if you call that steady. Below is a shot of a top team on their J22, with my friend Ralph swimming behind the boat. What’s that? Is it an airplane?... Read More »
