LEARN HOW TO SAIL A MULTIHULL
Easy to sail, fast and responsive, the 23’ Tremolino trimaran is the perfect vessel to develop multihull skills. Mooredale Sailing Club is operating the usage of the Tremolino owned by TMCC -‐ providing a perfect opportunity for Mooredale sailors to experience the fun and excitement of multihull sailing, without the expense and commitment of boat ownership.
The trimaran can be used for day sailing in the Toronto harbour area, Wednesday evening club races and for short distance club cruises.
The Tremolino is offered only to full time Sailing Mooredale members who enroll for this program. The cost is $125 per year. Membership includes small group lessons on handling the boat and using the small motor for docking.

How it works
We’re making changes but the heart of the program remains the same and it’s preYy simple: The Toronto Multihull Cruising Club provides the boat, including safety equipment, auxiliary engine, dinghy and club mooring. Mooredale Sailing Club provides the training, membership and volunteering efforts organization. The program is exclusively accessible to Mooredale Sailing Club’s sailing members.
The trimaran is available for day sailing in the Toronto area and also for the TMCC Wednesday evening club races, TMCC regatta and for short distance club cruises.Each boat will be shared by a maximum of 18 Trem Team members providing plenty of sea-time for each team member throughout the sailing season.
All team members must be 18 years of age or older and provide their own approved (Canadian) Personal Floatation Device and other required equipment for safety.
There are 2 categories of sailors in the program; Skipper and Crew.
Skipper: Applicants seeking a position of Skipper, require a minimum of CanSail 3, Bronze IV or CYA Basic Cruising Standard certificate of sailing competence or equivalent, or Mooredale Sailing Club’s skipper A level. In addition, Skippers must hold a valid Small Craft Operating Certificate, Toronto Harbour License and Restricted Operator’s Certificate (Maritime)ROC(M)).
Crew: Crew positions are open to those with any level of experience. Crew must always sail with a qualified Skipper. Upon achieving the appropriate qualifications, Crew may be promoted to the position of Skipper.
Legendary trimaran designer, Dick Newick, called his Tremolino design a “Trimaran for the masses.”
The boat is 23’ long and is very light and responsive. Tremolino owners report that their boats can reach speeds of 15 knots given the right conditions. Although it can be singlehanded, it will also comfortably hold 4 adults for daysailing.
The T.M.C.C. Tremolino has new, fully battened sails by Calvert Sails. It should prove to be very competitive on our Wednesday night race circuit.
Multihull design pioneer Dick Newick drew of some of the earliest ocean racing multihulls and he continues to design fast and simple performance multihulls today.
Dick’s motto is “People sail for fun and no one has yet convinced me that it’s more fun to go slow that it is to go fast.”
