Since David has gotten his answer maybe we can shift the discussion a bit (if it ok?) to tell about the times we broke 200 mile days.
No cheating monos only
we don't need the multi guys rubbing it in
they are allowed to sit back and smugly/smirk at our posts though.
The only true two hunded mile days, though I've come close a lot, was on a Little Harbor 52 she had a 80 footish mast
height from the water
line. Black Tie 1992 Little Harbor 52’
(sister ship) It was on a down hill run from St.Thomas to Eluthera Bahamas
. We had to hand steer due to problems with the autopilot
(NO ONE WAS COMPLAINING ABOUT THAT!). My favorite memories was the night watches, hearing the breaking seas behind me and above, feeling the lift
of the stern, counter steering
, and then screaming down the wave, bottom of the wave the rudder
goes slack, get ready for th next wave. Laughing all the way! The best day was 224 miles in 24 hours. sweet
