Righting a Corsair Trimaran

You'll definitely want to memorize these instructions - you won't be able to read these 15 steps in the water! Here are the instructions about how to right a capsized Corsair Trimaran. Even if it never happens to you, you'll want to know how to help any multihull sailor... instructions are straight out of the new Corsair Sailing Manual:  Righting at sea, unless outside help is available, is probably not a feasible option as yet. Probably better to leave the craft as it is, where the crew are... Read More »

30 Year Timeline of Corsair Marine

1984 - Corsair Marine was established through a partnership between John Walton (son of Sam Walton, Founder of Wal Mart) who offered to finance the production of the uniquely designed F boat and Ian Farrier, the designer who patented and built the original prototype in Australia back in 1974. With the production facility located in San Diego, California together they produced and marketed the world's first trailerable and very fast, trimarans. This initial partnership thus set the stage for a... Read More »

How to Handle a Capsize

Capsizing can happen to the best of us... and although trimarans have the lowest rate of capsizing, it still can happen to you. Here is an excerpt about how to handle a potential capsizing from the new Corsair Marine Sailing Manual : Capsize is always a possibility even if a remote one and should it ever occur, stay calm and make sure all crew are accounted for. Anyone inside can stay there, it being safe for some time. There is no danger of sinking. When sailing offshore the following items... Read More »

Corsair Trimaran Sailing Hints

I was reading the new Corsair Marine Sailing Manual where I noticed several great Corsair trimaran sailing tips I wanted to share: Corsair trimarans have several unique sailing features, one of these being the ability to make continuous 360° turns in the one spot. To do this, while going to windward for instance, just tack, but don’t touch any of the sheets. You will continue to turn, jibe and tack again indefinitely. This can be a handy tactic on starting lines! A simple way of heaving is to... Read More »

Spinnaker Sailing Downwind

The new Corsair Marine Sailing Manual has this article about the spinnaker sailing downwind. It caught my eye, so, I wanted to share: On first using an asymmetric spinnaker you may be disappointed with downwind performance with a fixed mast-unless you take note of what is said here. The asymmetric cannot match a full symmetric spinnaker straight downwind because of the smaller, flatter area and a restricted ability to project to windward. The major advantage is considerably easier handling and... Read More »

Spinnaker jibing on your Corsair trimaran

I was reading the new Corsair Marine Sailing Manual and this article about spinnaker jibbing... I wanted to share some of the options you have: The asymmetric spinnaker can be jibed either through inside in front of the screacher or forestay or around the outside. With ‘inside’ jibing the sheets are run between the spinnaker tack and the screacher if fitted, forestay if not. Outside jibing requires the sheets to be run outside the spinnaker tack. Inside jibing is probably the most common, as... Read More »
