M32s are 32-foot one-design carbon fiber catamarans built specifically for lightweight and fast racing.

The nimble two-person cat features stripped-down sail configurations with just a main and gennaker and maneuvers very well — as long as the skipper doesn’t push it too far, such as occurred at the recent M32 Scandinavian Series in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Team Trifork, under co-skippers Jes Gram-Hansen and Rasmus Kostner, capsized spectacularly in the last race, but fortunately no one was injured.

For a closer look at what M32 racing is really all about, take a look at this slick video we found.
