According to a post in another forum Ian Farrier has passed:
"It is with a heavy heart that I tell you Ian Farrier passed away in San Francisco
on his way back from the USA yesterday. We are in deep shock as we come to terms with the huge loss of our captain
, and our focus is on Ian’s immediate family
and the Farrier Marine
Ian was a visionary, a multihull
genius, an all-round nice guy who leaves behind a huge legacy to the sailing world.
Limited is a strong business with a three year order book for the revolutionary F-22 sailboat. Despite dealing with our grief, it is very much ‘business as usual’ at the factory today. It is our job now to carry on the Farrier legacy and ensure his vision is carried out. – Rob Densem."
I have heard that his F27 is the only multihull
that has been elected to the USA sailing hall of fame. His willingness to respond to questions about Farrier and Corsair
trimarans to complete strangers on several forums
seemed like he was a personal friend and mentor to get the most out of our boats. I will miss his advice
and presence. I love my Corsair
RIP good man
