Default Mini 40 Trimaran UK

New member from Nottingham England. Just finished my Mini 40. Pirahna design Hulls moulded in pre preg carbon in a full vac autoclave so extremely light. Did build curved beams for floats but 20mm diameter biax carbon tube is much stiffer and considerably lighter. (may not look so good though) Goes like the proverbial rocket. First post on here, but I have attached a maiden voyage picture. Intermediate area swing rig. Will be switching to conventional rig though, just happened to have this handy.
Next stage is to fit foils to the floats.

Best get that badboy down to Gosport when they're next racing and see how she lines up.

Looks tidy

Brilliant to see another Trimaran on the water... I'm still sailing from time to time my old Cobra design which was inspired by the Orma60 of the time... great for shows but not for racing... will have to build a new design soon...
