Re: Have you sailed a Trimaran ?

I've been on an F27 during a race. It was an absolute blast in breeze, 25-30+. Double reef and jib we're doing 14+ on a reach. Downwind with the screecher we hit 23 kts of boat speed before the shroud let go and we dropped the rig.

In breeze, there's NOTHING relaxing about these boats. It's a firehose on deck and out on the tramps. Don't know about light air.
