Sailing Trimarans

Sailing, in particular the trimaran race, is rightfully considered an extreme sport. All participants in the race are at considerable risk. Under good weather conditions, a racing trimaran can reach speeds of up to 30 knots and any oversight in controlling a vessel can lead to serious consequences.
