The greatest boat race ever! Race to Alaska!

Here's a great read from Outside, Race to Alaska! In the race are 4 trimarans'—2 Corsair's, 1 custom built and 1 Farrier. The rules: Pilot a boat 750 miles from Port Townsend, Washington, to Ketchikan, Alaska—no motors allowed. The prize: $10,000 nailed to a piece of wood. The result: Seven capsizings, four lifesaving Big Macs, one dramatic coast guard rescue, and a cast of oddball adventurers who reclaimed the salty heart of ocean racing.

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 »

2015 Corsair Nationals - High PHRF Class Report

Thank you Team SnowFox for reporting on the high PHRF class! This was absolutely an exciting start to the 3 days of racing ahead of us. As we headed out to the G 145 start line on a forecasted light to medium day we found ourselves bouncing in rolling white caps as we entered the start area. I saw then I had not dressed well for the morning as it was a little wetter and cooler than I thought it would be.  Start line was a mite skewed to the RC end making it almost a single point start, but we...
