DASH MKII, 12 months on.

Hello Corsair, Last spring it was a special feeling to me when the first pictures of the new Corsair Dash 750 MKII were published, because I knew it would soon be MY boat. She was on her way to the “boot” exhibition in Dusseldorf, Germany. After the exhibition I would take her home to the Baltic in Northern Germany by trailer. Of course I had to see her right at her arrival in Germany, so I was there when she arrived at the exhibition ground. The pictures had shown much of the new details,... Read More »

The Sprint 750 Very Light and Lively to Sail!

This is a fun boat! I've sailed in San Francisco Bay, on the Sprint 750, through "the slot" and felt very secure. It was a solid sailing trimaran. Here's a fun video featuring the the Corsair Sprint 750. This video was first posted back in 2010. I thought I'd bring it back out of the archives for everyone to enjoy. The Corsair Sprint 750...brought to you by Bob Gleason, Don Wigston and Phil Styne. Here is what Sailing World had to say back in 2007… The Corsair SPRINT 750 (24') is Sailing World... 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...

Race Around the Coronado's

  There was a classic diversity among the crew that one can only find in the greatest stories. The Captain, Kurt, was a seasoned multihull racer. One could hardly call him a fanatic, but his experience at the helm was clear to everyone aboard. Next were Randy and Jodie Fraser, the husband and wife pair. Both have also cruised extensively aboard a multihull, but filled a much different roll than Kurt. While Kurt had an infinitely calm and managerial aura about him, Randy and Jodie were the...

Chubasco Update, from Alameda Marina

First I we want to say thanks to Gary Helms, my sailing buddy Rob, and the great crew at Alameda Marina (Eric, Brock, Ray and others). You made a slightly stressful situation a bit less stressful. Also kudos to a very skillful crane operator. Also thanks to you all for the concern... The boat is back on the trailer and the insurance adjuster dance begins.  As an FYI, the wheels were double chocked and the trailer tongue wheel blocked. It appears the boat powered up in a very focused gust (I was... Read More »

No matter how safe and secure you try to make things, Mother Nature can still give you a wedgie!

Alameda Marina Boat Owners, I just returned from the Alameda Marina, and as was reported earlier, the only BAMA boat that was blown off the trailer was the F-31 "Chubasco".  Somehow Chubasco was blown West, across the fairway, where she collided with a car, breaking out the rear window. Somehow, the combination of the impact with the car, and the wind, caused the boat to be blown off the trailer, and onto her port side. A crane was called, which arrived while we were there, and we watched as... Read More »

It's time to prepare for next year’s sailing season.

Now that the sailing season is winding down or has wound down for most of us its time to think about boat maintenance. Help preserve your Corsair trimaran's gel coat by giving it a thorough waxing and buffing. This protects the gel coat from further deterioration (oxidization) and will pay dividends when eventually (perish the thought) its time to sell your boat. Also take the time to “winterize” your Corsair trimaran's motor--which at the very least means flushing out any residual salt water... Read More »

The Power of Beauty and Strength

Both the Corsair 31 trimaran and the desirable Ferraris are works of art. With designs that emanate passion for racing, perfection and power. WOW!

The C31 is a proven,... Read More »
