Objective & Mission Profile of systems and sail controls. On his first Solo Transatlantic Race, not only did he win, but he shattered the previously held record by more than two days. Months later he won the famous Fastnet race and now he is preparing his boat for La Route du Rhum. I have noticed the same amount of detail and careful approach in manufacture when examining the Fountaine Pajot cruising catamarans. Similar to Eric’s approach to the design and construction of “Trilogic” all Fountaine Pajot catamarans are built for easy operation and dependability.

Lately the North Atlantic Ocean experienced its most severe hurricane season, yet this statistic will become insignificant when looking at the big below Eric Bruneel’s reliable 50foot “Trilogic” before winning the notorious Fastnet Race in 2005. In the previous year, he was victorious in the Single-handed Trans-Atlantic Race (STAR) and set a new course record. ” This boat has the potential to challenge the dominance of the 60-foot trimarans and set new directions in the design of hulls and rigs for future generations of sailing craft.

When we speak about an unsinkable vessel, I mean a boat not sinking to the bottom of the ocean if holed. Unlike the Titanic, which was claimed to be invincible because of her watertight compartments (actually many of them were only partial bulkheads, as they did not extend all the way through the boat), a multihull is usually unsinkable because of the way she is built. Most modern catamarans are constructed by Safety utilizing composites whereby a core material, usually foam, is sandwiched between two skins of resin-impregnated cloth.
