World's Fastest Sailboat
This thing is supposedly the fastest sailing ship on water and has reached land equivalent speeds of 61 mph. I guess the plan is to enter the TransPac (California to Hawaii and then beyond for some) race next year.
I wish them luck. Many years ago now friends entered a tri-hulled sailboat in the same race. They showed up a month or so later but with no sign of the boat in whole or in pieces. They never talked about it and none ever sailed again.
