Multihulls on the brain

The sight of a racing trimaran, such as this one in Collin's Bay, always makes the Captain's heart beat faster.

This RCMP catamaran which we enountered on the North Channel to Gananoque from Kingston is a sister ship to Nadon, the RCMP cat that transited the Northwest Passage several years ago.

Speaking of multihulls in the small-world department, at Kingston, we met Rich and Tamara and son James aboard a Rosborough 246. They sailed a cruising trimaran from San Francisco to New Zealand in the 1990s. In 1989, Rich and the Captain met briefly in San Francisco when the Captain's ocean-racing trimaran was moored off Corinthian Yacht Club in Tiburon after a record-setting voyage around Cape Horn from San Francisco.

Pecan, as the Rosborough is called, was en route to Florida from Michigan.
