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.

It is one thing to have a fast sailboat. It another thing to have one that is safe in the open ocean.
