Folding Corsair trimarans: Legendary ability, unbeatable reliability

Corsair trimarans fold on water, off water and with effortless ease. Most models fold within the width of similar-lengthed monohulls!  This allows a level of versatility unachievable in a conventional trimaran due to the huge beam required for high performance sailing. Simply put, in our 30 year experience, for a trimaran to be viable for most users, it must be able to fold with ease and not increase its length when folded. Four upper solid aluminum compression struts, eight solid aluminum lower... Read More »

Spinnaker sailing downwind on a Corsair trimaran

When first using an asymmetric spinnaker you may be disappointed with the downwind performance with a fixed mast unless you take note of what is said here. The asymmetric cannot match a full symmetric spinnaker straight downwind because of the smaller, flatter area and a restricted ability to project to windward. The major advantage is considerably easier handling and superior reaching performance. Tacking downwind does not work well with fixed masts, as the mast interferes with mainsail flow... Read More »

Corsair Trimarans are built for the R2AK!

You may have already heard about this race, but if you haven't here's a short run down. This race isn't for everyone. It’s like the Iditarod, on a boat, with a chance of drowning …being run down by a freighter, or eaten by a grizzly bear. There are squalls, killer whales, tidal currents that run upwards of 20 miles an hour, and some of the most beautiful scenery on god’s green earth. R2AK is based on the hardest kind of simplicity: You, a boat, a starting gun $10,000  if you finish first, A set... Read More »

How do America's Cup boats fly above the water?

  There are many many opinions and perspectives...Where do YOU fall in? - These guys must have little loyalty to slap on another country's flag. Where's the pride in that? AC has gotten so far away from sailing it's disappointing. - Sorry, but this isn't what sailing is about. this is completely outside the realm of what sailing is about. - Those cats with those hydro skis are in no way representing what sailing is about. Altogether different gig. fast-tracking where the craft itself isn't... Read More »
