Western Circuit Regatta Results and Special Pricing on Sprint 750's

Congratulations to Deborah Barker and her crew on Deb's Dash on winning the Western Circuit Sailing Regatta trimaran class in Singapore.  They did it in some style, never scoring worse than 2nd place in all 9 races!  Scott McCook and Foreign Talent managed the same feat - taking 4 bullets and 3 x 2nd places, but a damaged sail wrote off 2 races and Deb's Dash had left them no room for error.   While not limited to Corsairs, the fleet did contain a total of 5 Dash 750's or Sprint 750's - the...

Regatta excitement and a chance to replace your boat!

 We've been keeping an eye on the Western Circuit Sailing Regatta in Singapore - and in particular our friend Scott McCook, with his Corsair Sprint 750 Foreign Talent among an exciting trimaran fleet. They have had 2 days of sailing out of Raffles Marina, with McCook's & co's Foreign Talent leading the field after day 1.  Bad luck though, the race report tells us they have suffered a torn spinnaker and had to sit out two races on day 2.  Another 750 has taken advantage and Deborah Barker's Deb...

Fun with Tris!

  Fun with Tris!    Sailing multihulls for me has been a very enjoyable experience! I guess in my old age I have gotten impatient. Time these days seems to be at a premium to everybody. So when I have a chance to take the boat out I need to get the most bang for my buck, time wise. With my Dash 750 I can have twice the amount of fun in half the time. Meaning I can sail farther and cover more distance in a shorter amount of time. This is especially important when you are trying to go on a long... Read More »

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 »

Our Sailing Adventure at the 2014 Corsair Nationals!

Photo above provided by Kathryn Garlick. We arrived in Port Clinton late Wednesday afternoon with my Sprint 750 after a rather eventful trip. Sometimes the hardest challenge of sailboat racing is just getting the boat to the starting line! We rigged and launched the boat and took a pleasant cruise down the Portage River to the Port Clinton Yacht Club,  just in time for the skippers meeting and Corsair welcome party and to make final preparations for the race to Put-In-Bay the next morning.

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 »
