I have had the boat for this summer season, but the other day was my first ride at speed. VERY exciting. My crew was extatic. More later.

This was first summer for my boat as well. I have sailed a Hobie 18M for 15 years.

I sailed the Trifoiler several times in low winds just to learn the idiosynchrsies of sailing in displacement mode with foils up/down and to master launching/beaching without breaking anything or snagging any of the beach crowd on a foil.

I have had several really great foiling sessions and had pasengers (including my 80 year old dad) out 4 times on foils. Right after getting on foils, the hoots and yelps from the backseat are amazing.. although often interlaced with unprintable stuff as well! Hmm, I need to archive some audio recordings of first time coments. The grins don't wear off the passengers faces for quite some time.
