Are you too old to sail?

Of course not! Occasionally we are told by potential customers that they think they are too old to buy a Corsair trimaran. My somewhat trite, tongue in cheek answer is “You are only as old as you think you are”. By this I mean feeling old is more a state of mind than a physical condition. We have sold boats to several people well into their 80s, many of whom are still sailing actively. Take Andy Green for example. Andy and his wife Joyce are an adventurous couple who have sailed extensively... Read More »

New question on a C28

Dear Sirs, On a C28 I saw a block and tackle used to tension the shrouds. Do you have any hints what kind of loads this system has to cope with on a Dash? Additionally I think of adding a second pair of shrouds very near to genoa outlet to compensate mast bending to leeward when in higher winds (>10kn). Warm regards from germany. Felix. Name: Felix Boat_Type: Dash 750 '09 Subject: apply shroud-tensioning mechanism like i have seen on C28 Read More »

Cracking sound in the mast of my C28

Question: Hello Corsair Team, I got a pretty annoying and loud cracking sound within the mast of my C28, when I am sailing with more wind or even, when I just push firmly horizontally at the lower end of the mast. It seems that the sound is coming from somewhere from within in breast height although this is difficult to determine exactly. I already detached the boom and lossened all halyards in order to exclude that it was coming from a misleaded halyard under tension... without any result. The... Read More »

2014 Neptune Regatta Recap!

Another fantastic year at the 2014 Neptune Regatta in Asia! Congratulations to Richard and Jean Proust and a lucky Scott McCook.

The expected battle between Scott McCook's Grainger 30 RAW and Richard Eyre's Corsair C37 Zhuka, fell by the wayside as Zhuka's centerboard was broken after hitting the reef last night. This left the door open for McCook's RAW to capitalize, notching up two wins and race away with the... Read More »

Lifting my C28

Question: Can my Corsair C28CR be safely lifted using the lifting eye bolts with the mast raised? Name: Martin Lawrence Boat_Type: C28CR Answer: Hi Martin, Yes, you can lift the boat with the lifting U bolts, whether the mast is up in position or laying on deck. You should be mindful that the lifting slings do not interfere with the cap shrouds or diamond wires on mast. To avoid this from happening, you will need to use a spreader bar. When lifting, take care as the center of weight will have... Read More »

Tuning a Corsair 28

  There are two areas that should be tuned if you are interested in racing.  The first is the rig.  The rotating mast boats are much easier to tune than the fixed masts on either the 27 or the 31.  The first thing I would do is check the diamond wires to be sure that the mast is straight and there is enough tension to prevent inversion.  With a Loos tension guage I would set the tension at 1800lbs or maybe 2000lbs.  The second setting to check is the mast rake.  Mast rake is dictated by the...
