The times given are in UTC (GMT). You need to deduct 4 hours to get EDT.
So, the time you mentioned (10pm UTC) was, indeed, the reported time of capsize.
And, as we've all noted before, things were apparently not too bad.
I don't know multihulls at all, so I can't speculate what happened. A friend with a large cat told me today that the Corsair is a very light boat. We need to hear from the sailor himself.
I do know that I've been in exactly that place a number of times, and it can get choppy and nasty off the NJ coast, even for a well found and larger monohull.
