    From the front page on SA:

    It is with a heavy heart that I tell you Ian Farrier passed away in San Francisco on his way back from the USA yesterday. We are in deep shock as we come to terms with the huge loss of our captain, and our focus is on Ian’s immediate family and the Farrier Marine team.

    Ian was a visionary, a multihull genius, an all-round nice guy who leaves behind a huge legacy to the sailing world.

    Farrier Marine Limited is a strong business with a three year order book for the revolutionary F-22 sailboat. Despite dealing with our grief, it is very much ‘business as usual’ at the factory today. It is our job now to carry on the Farrier legacy and ensure his vision is carried out. – Rob Densem.

    I had the pleasure of talking to Ian several times via e-mail. He was an inspiration to me and a damn nice guy-I'm saddened by his loss......

    Ohh my... Just had a chat with him few weeks ago and he let one of his tri plans available to me out of courtesy.
    Was about to purchase it and this, my thoughts and prayer are with his family.
    RIP Ian.

    Very sad news, certainly a designer who pushed the trailerable trimaran paradigm forward and reinvigorated multihull club racing.

    Sad news, lots of people would still be interested in Legacy tri plans. I hope his work will have sensible custodians. His boats will keep his name alive.
