At a Corsair Nationals in Florida one year, Randy Smythe organized an exercise where we all sailed a figure 8 course between two buoys. There was no start line or finish line, this was an exercise in close quarters high speed boat handling. We put a 2×4 between the two bows to keep her from collapsing, but could feel the mushy deck and see her sides flex when we hiked.
On a blue sky Texas day, he came up to the wind, bore off, the forestay curved, and she flew!

We never trapped out on that boat, afraid she would take us down when the inevitable implosion happened. We put the bows down on a big bear away and sent spray showering over the cockpit and leeward tramp. Tacked and gybed single handed across a lovely, cool sea breeze against a flood tide in brilliant sunshine. We pulled three boat lengths ahead and to leeward, tacked for the mark and never looked back.
We had a newby aboard that day, never sailed a trimaran before and it was his turn to drive.


Maneuvered back into the Sound, to reach across the flood bows down, sheets eased, windward float high. Pelicans dove on the fish stirred up in the flood, clumsy Northern Gannets struggled into the air to race ahead of the boat, wheel and dive. Two powerful strokes and she was aloft, shivered the water off wicked wings and flew her catch to the littles in the nest.
