Fedesail Hi,

I was walking around Bordeira Beach (Carrapateira, Portugal) at low tide last week, when I saw a piece of a boat hull with part of its name "... Flyer" and the legend "Edgartown" printed on it.

There was something eerie about it so after coming back home I googled a bit to found out that a Brian Mann of Edgartown owned a boat with the name "High Flyer", and then I came across this post and also across (mvgazette.com/article.php?25841) where -apparently- they describe the whole story.

Unfortunately I´m quite broke and I´m not looking forward to subscribe to the Vineyard Gazzette just to read this one (as a resident in Spain I don´t find it useful enough...), but I'll appreciate if someone can tell me more about it.

Best regards,

Not to heap it on, but I think I've previously mentioned here that a number of years ago we rendered assistance to an F-27 that had pitch-poled on Chesapeake Bay during an overnight race. It was blowing pretty good that night, they were running before a strong norther and buried a bow. No injuries, everyone taken off safely by the Coast Guard.

Fun looking boats, but it's not only on the open ocean that you have to be cautious...

sailingdog A Corsair 36 will be a bit harder to flip, since it is larger... and the stability geometrically with the water line IIRC.

Good point. I am just hoping that it is not so easy to flip one, particularly since I have seen other reports of them flipping during races, though I met some of the crew on on one of those, and I know that they push it when racing by "flying one and sometimes 2 hulls," as I was told. This person told me that if when sailing one of the amas completely submerges, you have to worry about flipping. He had my 36 with one ama at about 3 feet out of the water, which was a bit unnerving for me at the time (having just gotten the boat). I guess that we'll just have to wait and see what happened.
