Corsair trimaran safety compartment

Before sailing any Corsair trimaran, it's important that the safety compartment be loaded with the appropriate safety gear. This compartment is accessible from top or bottom and is usually located in a cockpit coaming or under the cockpit seat. Its purpose is to keep important safety equipment that should be available to the crew in any emergency situation, including a capsize. The equipment stored here should include flares, a handheld VHF radio, EPIRB (offshore), extra line, spare tools,... 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 »

TOMA Championship Update

After further analysis, we uncovered a couple of errors in the calculations for the overall TOMA Championship (Extreme Freshwater Edition) trophy.  There was confusion over the course lengths entered in the online Regatta Network for the Pulse 600 class, that impacted the overall results. This error did not impact the Pulse 600 class results (scored as One Design). For the TOMA trophy, we used the actual PHRF ratings calculated by TOMA chief Measurer “Michael Zotzky” for all 12 boats who... Read More »

Baja Ha-Ha XXIV on a Seawind 1190 is the way to go!

Baja Ha-Ha XXIV will be run on October 29-November 11, 2017 from San Diego to Cabo San Lucas Mexico. Here is a short report from Mark Pillsbury, Cruising World. Thanks Mark for sharing! The weather file I downloaded on my borrowed Iridum Go! forecast clear skies, with 2 to 3 knots of breeze last night and sunny conditions with a 2- to 3-knot northwesterly for today. For the most part that was accurate, but as the hours rolled along here aboard Meriweather, and we ticked off the miles sailing... 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 »

Well Built Boats Last

I'm talking about quality builds, not race finish positions. We owned a 1992 MK1 (kimosabi) for 3 years, selling her this past June. It was our third Corsair, having previously owned and raced/cruised a 1992 F-27 (fadin fast) and cruised a 1996 F-31 (kimosabi). We mainly raced our MK1. Our last regatta in 2014 was a great way to retire from Corsair racing. The photo of kimosabi screaming to weather with spray flying was taken at our first place finish in a chase race (reverse handicap) including... Read More »

Review from Trade Boats: Corsair Pulse 600

  Small trimarans like the Corsair Pulse 600 are ideal boats for Australia’s shoal waters. This multihull sailboat has a shallow draft, large deck space and performance, plus the fact that it’s a trailerable trimaran makes it very convenient. Mooring a trimaran of course is the challenge, unless a safe swing mooring is available, but this isn’t a problem for the Corsair Pulse 600, a trailerable trimaran with a unique folding system. Another attraction is stability, as a trimaran’s wide beam and... Read More »

Good breeze to a successful end for the 2015 Cape Panwa Hotel Phuket Raceweek / July 15-19

A pleasant eight knots welcomed sailors on the final day of the 2015 Cape Panwa Hotel Phuket Raceweek and PRO Simon James wasted no time in getting the fleet into sequence.

And as the wind held in, the PRO opted to send all but the Cruising and Charter/ Bareboat classes on a second race, around... Read More »
