The beginning of 2014 has seen a long overdue of return of Corsair action on the water here in San Diego. West Coast Multihulls Performance was officially launched on Jan 1, 2014 with the initial target of re-developing and elevating a Corsair racing fleet in So-Cal. Below are some highlights of WCM Performance so far for 2014:

Lobbied for and were accepted to San Diego PHRF fleet as a Multihull Division with Bob Lang and myself as the board members. This is a significant step in that it is the first time in the US and possibly the world that Multihulls are accepted into the established race governing organization and can play in all the same regattas and clubs as monohulls.

Corsair Mini Clinic – with great success we tried a new formant for raising awareness of the Corsair Trimarans and to simply get people on the water. Over a weekend four 2hr sessions were filled and 12 new sailors got a taste of Corsair trimarans, this short but sweet approach proved to be popular and requested again. The highlight of this weekend was rolling over the top of an old Americas Cup boat full of new sailors as well. Can you guess who was having more fun?

Corsair Performance Clinic – This one day clinic is designed to help owners and current Corsair sailors get the most out of their boats. Various Corsair specific theories and practices are presented in a class setting in the AM and then taken onto the water and implemented in the PM. This turned out to be a great day with all four boats exceeding 15kts boat speed by end of day!
