We had a 200 mile day down winding from San Francisco; 45 kts of wind, 12' rollers, using the jib to one side and a 150 genny to the other wing & wing with the main sail boomed out on the jib side. 47' Skookum, we really had to keep a tight hand on the wheel coming off the face of the wave , love that long deep keel, for straight line tracking. On the leg from San Diego to Nuka Hiva we made 2700 nm in 23 days.

According to this wiki article:

Ellen MacArthur - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The fastest time is 57 days, 13 hours 34 minutes and 6 seconds.

Of course, these aren't monos.

According to Dashew, to get 200 miles days all you need is long waterline length, a good wind, and a lot of cash.... Can't do it on the cheap in any boat you would want to do it in..

The only good reason I could see for that would be to get ou t of the way of a major blow, like hurricanes or big tropical depressions. The rest of the time, 125 mile days are just fine for me as long as the water and ice and steaks don't run out and theres a good book to read.

As for mono's, this link

Dodge D Morgan's solo circumnavigation

suggests the single-handed monohull record for a circumnavigation is
150 days 1 hr 6 mins (171 miles per day, or 7.1 knots on average).

Here's the relevant quote:
Quote:
... Dodge D Morgan's sail around, non-stop in 150 days, one-hour and six minutes was accomplished in 1985-1986 and was documented by D.H. "Nobby" Clarke who was the authenticator for Guinness in sailing ventures. He was the first American to sail around non-stop and in the process set thirteen solo sailing records ... Fastest speed for a single handed monohull circumnavigation: 25,670 miles in 150 days 1 hr 6 mins = average speed 171.1 m.p.d. or 7.13 knots.

On our trip we considered anything over 100 nm a day a bonus.

A couple of weeks ago I crewed on a boat from Cape York to Gove, a trip of 350 miles. Did it in a shade under 44 hours, taking it very easy, using headsails only, slowing down to a part furled jib at night.

Winds were consistently around 150' apparent ranging from 10-20 knots (true) with a 24 knot peak.
An average of just a whisker under 8 knots, which is 192 miles per 24 hrs. peak boatspeed was around 16 knots on a surf.

Boat was an Oram 39C. Oops thats a cat.

Best we did in our 40 foot mono was around 120nm a day. In a near gale.

I have the fastest "American" circumnavigation at 109 days...which may also be the fastest on a wood-hulled yacht.

Regarding this thread title...200 mpd is barely moving!

Plan to always go with the current - even the slowest boats become screamers when sailing along the Gulf Stream.... and your theory becomes reality

(Wishing I were there right now! )

For the singlehanded monohull racers, here is the results from the last Vendee Globe around the world race--winnner was around in 84 days for an average speed over the race course of 12.3 knots or 293 mpd, and and average of 336 mpd over the course he actually sailed. The best day's run was 439 miles.

Barely moving for a racer like you. But pretty damn fast for us cruisers.

I prefer 150 nm days, thank you very much.

My only time topping 200 nm was downhill in a gale under storm jib only in 14' swells with 8' wind waves. Not an experience I'd like to repeat anytime soon. We hit the magic number, 216 nm, which meant that we'd averaged 9 knots over a 24-hour period. It took a bit of surfing to hit that number.

Hello to Bruce S., by the way.

And welcome to CF.

Isn't it about time you moved back to the bay area? I still haven't been able to find another rigger who can do a proper continuous-line splice.

Bruce,

OP is a sailing beast, and not the norm. I stood next to Ellen when you christened her. I watched you sail down the city from with that beautiful huge flag flying proud as we passed port to port......i2f
