In short, I found myself without a fleet in my early 40's asking the question "what's next?".  I learned to sail at age 7.  I won my first national championship at 11, was a four-year letter at USMMA with a few national titles in hand by graduation in 1997.  After college, like many others, I continued to sail lasers and V15s though many of my fellow collegiate sailing competitors went into full-time Olympic campaigns.  ...

A slow story about a fast boat

Here's a good story we thought you might find interesting. First reported by Latitude 38 June 19, 2017— San Francisco Bay You may have noticed a handful of young Italian men sporting Team Maserati shirts in Point Richmond over the past few months. Whether their espressos are pre-paid is a question for Giovanni Soldini, team leader, world-renowned skipper, and owner of the Multi70 trimaran — or MOD70 — Maserati.

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. Here's how we fit a boat with 6.8m beam into into a 2.5m berth. Four... Read More »

What is your idea of the perfect sailboat?

  Here is an honest and fresh review of the Pulse 600 from Bob Webbon and Martin Hamilton out of Galveston Bay. Sailboats are either built for comfort or for speed.

These guys have been racing catamarans for years so we thought it would be a good idea to ask them what they thought of the boat. What is your idea of... Read More »
