      The trimaran was just one of a spate of re-appearances of missing sailboats. In January, the capsized hull of a Leopard 44 catamaran was found drifting off the east coast of South Africa. It and its three crew had disappeared in the Indian Ocean in February on a delivery voyage from South Africa to a Sunsail base in Thailand. In our first post about the NINJA SPIDER TRIMARAN, we found this sailboat being offered in 3 different production first option, referred to at the time as the “NINJA SPIDER resort,” has been removed from the updated SMG-Multihull pricelist so things could be simplified.. The designer, Gerhard Schein, provided some updated photos of this boat, which display it during a recent.

      Just saw this news regarding the recovery of Randy’s boat from the capsize off Sanibel during the EC. It’s great this boat was recovered especially that unique wing sail! “Hall of fame sailor Randy Smyth called it a needle-in-a-haystack moment — the recovery of his foot sailboat Synergy a day after it capsized near Sanibel Island during a mile race down Florida’s west coast. Yes, you could capsize a F27 trimaran in 25 knots of wind with the unreefed main and jib fully sheeted in. The most common cause of larger multihull capsizes is being over-canvassed and then making a mistake. Turning the boat quickly or steering into the waves the wrong way can both contribute to capsizing a multihull that is over-canvassed.

      If the risk of capsize is because a wave has hit the tri abeam then this idea would help the trimaran slide down the breaking face and possibly stop the craft from tripping over the amas/float in the trough of the wave, rounded hulls would slide best without daggerboards. In a superb narrative, NY TIMES bestselling author Callahan chronicles the four-month (April - August ) struggle of Jim Nalepka and three other crew (Phil Hofman, John Glennie and Rick Hellriegel) to survive on their capsized trimaran adrift in the the stormy seas of the wintry South Pacific/5(25).

While on passage from Bermuda to New York, the trimaran RTL-Timex was capsized in a storm.

At the time I drew a distinction between wind induced capsize and wave induced capsize. At the time, I judged capsize by wind to be the less likely of the two, because the risk could be controlled by the sailor by reducing or striking sail and altering course. Unfortunately, for these 4 men, the possibility becomes reality.

Even more frightening, this book is a true story. What occurs is a never ending nightmare and a struggle for survival beyond imagination. Four men board a trimaran for a pleasure cruise, encounter a gale that inverts the craft/5(5).
