somersault 26 vs corsair f-24 who's faster??

which is a the faster boat?
I'm shopping for a small trimaran for daysailing and solo cruising on lake Michigan.
I've narrowed my search to a corsair f24 mark 1 and a dick newick sommersault/outrigger 26. both weigh in at close to the same amount with the newick a couple feet longer and a couple feet beamier. sail area is roughly the same.
would one of these be noticibly faster?
the f24 with it's folding amas would be greatly simpler to set up and put away

I'll take a WAG and say the newick is faster and cooler. If you're going to trailer it, me, I'd go with the corsair. The quicker and easier it is to get it ready to sail, the more sailing you will do.
