Roller Reefing

Question: With the standard Sprint Mk1 setup, the end of the rotation arm extends past the deck padeye which I assume is there to connect the rotation arm to the deck after having rolled the sail around the boom for reefing? I could connect the rotation adjustment system further back so it is more vertical above the padeye but my question is will this create undesirable forces pulling the rotation lever hard against the back of the mast? What do others do to solve this? See attached image... Read More »

Efficient and powerful rotating mast control on a Corsair

The correct rotation of a rotating mast will give a much more efficient and powerful mainsail. It is thus important that the rig not be set up too tight as this can prevent full rotation. There are many opinions on what the correct amount of rotation should be but a general guideline is to keep the mast rotated enough to give a smooth, even, transition from the mast to the mainsail on the leeward side. Achieving the right amount of rotation will improve your speed and mainsail shape by... Read More »

Learn more about Corsair's windward performance

All Corsair models will point very high if set up and sailed correctly but this can also be very dependent on the crew’s skill. It is possible to point just as high as a mono hull but this may not be the fastest way to windward. A good multihull is capable of much higher speeds to windward than a mono, which also brings the apparent wind forward, to where pointing is much greater. One thing to avoid is over sheeting the headsail, while pulling this very tightly will guarantee a good pointing ... 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 »
