F-82 Wins Australian Nationals

2002 UK Farrier National Championships: Another successful event hosted by the Bembridge Sailing Club, Isle of Wight. Overall winner was Pete Newman (F-27 Martine) by one point, with Brian Haynes (F-28R Carbon Tiger) 2nd, and Mike Wigmore (F-24 Trivia) 3rd. It is intended to make the 2003 (10 – 13 July) event bigger by introducing a cruising program as well as the racing program for serious racers.

F-9AX does well again: Richard Roscoe’s TRIOHE took 8th overall in the Cowes-St Malo race, from 140 entries. It was 165 miles on the wind for three quarters of the way and the F-9AX finished only eight minutes behind Mollymawk, a 40 ft racing Tri (with one third the accommodation) that won the 2002 Round Britain race.

Another Trailertri 720 with a new lease of life
Trailertri renovations are becoming very popular in Australia.

Another F-82 Launched: Claude and Lynn McDill’s F-82 in South Carolina

Another F-36 Launched: Scott Webster’s fantastic new F-36 in Washington State

F-9AX shows its speed: The F-9AX is a wider and even roomier version of the F-9A/F-31, and Richard Roscoe’s TRIOHE proved it also quite a performer by coming 11th fastest overall in the 2001 Round the Isle of Wight Race on the 16th June, from 1775 starters! More details are near bottom of History page via link.

…and the F-9AX does it again!: Richard Roscoe’s TRIOHE took line honors in the Royal Southampton Yacht Club’s Two-handed Round the Isle of Wight Race on July 14th, leading home 146 entries (up to 80′ monos plus an F-25C and F-28R).

Farrier – Corsair Separation

October 28, 2000

Mike Horn completes his LATITUDE 0° quest to circumnavigate the world at the Equator. His epic voyage started with crossing the Atlantic single-handed in his F-28 trimaran. The voyage from Libreville (Gabon), to the banks of the Amazon at Macapa, Brazil took a record 19 days, with speeds reaching over 20 knots at times. Upon arrival Mike said “ I’m more than satisfied – the boat and all the technical equipment ran very well even during the most difficult moments”
Mike next walked across South America, rejoined his F-28 in Ecuador, and then completed the long 8,685 mile Pacific leg in 67 days without any problems. The Indian Ocean crossing was the most difficult ocean segment and Mike then walked across Africa to Gabon to complete the circumnavigation of the globe at the equator without any motorized transport – the first to ever do this.
It should be noted that Mike’s F-28 is a completely stock F-28, straight off the production line, and without any special modifications other than what Mike did himself. It was an excellent demonstration of the strength and reliability of stock Farrier designs. However it should also be noted that while it is nice to know that the F-28 is capable of such long ocean crossings in experienced hands, it still remains a small trailerable yacht and is not recommended or intended for this purpose
