3 Small Trimarans Built by WaterTribe Guys

Sailor Eric Marechal sent me the following link to a trimaran named MOSQUITO, which competed at the Everglades Challenge this year. I’d love to find out more about this boat. (Perhaps I can do an interview with the builders/sailors :-)

The following images are linked to directly at their webpage at http://sailnaway.blogspot.com/

And Tom Raidna (from buildboats.com) sent me the following link, which goes to this Duckworks page featuring a couple of small trimarans built to Roger Mann, who goes by the Watertribe name of JollyRoger.

These images are linked to from the Duckworks page:
The first is Roger’s XRT Trimaran Canoe

And this image shows of his Triplaner trimaran

Here are a couple of Roger’s YouTube videos featuring the XRT …

    Alan Stewart (SOS, his dad is Paul) and his mother Dawn (SandyBottom)completed the 1200 mile Ultimate Florida Challenge (the Everglades Challenge was just the first stage), surely a good day for small trimaran enthusiasts. The caveat is that they switched to a canoe for the 40 mile road portage and the following 300 miles of river. They even finished the EC on time despite being held back more than a day at the start line due to the teething problems. Wow!
