I'm seriously shopping
for a fast trimaran
daysailing and some singlehanded cruising on lake michigan. I've been leaning towards the corsair
f25 mark one as I like the centerboard
option and the sliding hatch
. I also found a newick somersault/outrigger 26.
I'm not new to sailing but am new to multihulls. Can anyone give me some input on plusses/minuses of the corsair
vs the newick. I don't anticipate trailering either boat much. (Just to/from the launch at the beginning/end of the season so don't see the longer setup for the newick as a problem especially if I could expect better performance out of the newick.
Would either boat be significantly faster than the other?
Is one significantly more seaworthy
On the newick tri It appears the lashings for the tramps is the sole way of securing the amas. Should I see this as a problem?
Are there any factors unseen by me that might make one or the other as a better option?
Thanks for your help.
