Multihulls means Firebirds. The port area is home to many of the total of sixteen Firebirds constructed. The last Championship attracted 9 of them.

They are allegedly the fastest production catamaran, with a claimed maximum speed of 27 knots.

Since they are effectively a one design class, handicaps are not applied to this class. There are some differences between the catamarans in the fleet (noticeably in the sails), but the class wished to be treated as a one design. However we do record finishing times, although these are seldom published.

M class captain: Alistair Wright
