A Caribbean Treasure, the Trimaran Tryst to Celebrate 50th Birthday at 2019 Caribbean Multihull Challenge
by Herb McCormick, Dec 27, 2018

"Her main hull and amas (outriggers) were built in Orlando, Maine of cold-molded mahogany at the Thurston Company boatyard. Designed by Dick Newick, the preeminent creator of trimarans at the time, the parts were then shipped to St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, along with the identical hulls and amas for another set of boats, all of which were members of Newick’s Trice class.

There, in St. Croix in 1969, Tryst was assembled and began life as a day charter boat, taking tourists out for short sails and snorkeling trips."

Caribbean Multihull Challenge Day 1: Finn and Tryst the big winners
by Herb McCormick, 15 February 2020

"And in CSA Multihull 2, the longtime Caribbean campaigner Tryst, a Newick Trice II design, also has a comfortable lead after recording two bullets in the roiled waters off St. Maarten. [...] Returning after a fine showing in last year's CMC, Bernard "Appie" Stoutenbeck's and Arthur Banting's Tryst put on a fine display of sailing, particularly with a sweet mark rounding in the second race despite a massive header on their final approach."
