Re: 24 hour monohull distance record broken

Actually, given the conditions for the Transalantic race I'm surprised that Comanche didn't beat Phaedo 3. They were ideal conditions for a mono win in a multi/mono contest, light conditions for over half the distance, the monos should have been out of sight. The crew on Phaedo must have really earned that win.

Re: 24 hour monohull distance record broken

Here's another thing that Phaedo can do better than Comanche--maybe its why the big toys are mostly mono's.

@donradcliffe
Well all monohullers know that multihulls are more stable that way

Not even close.
It could be in the context it is designed for, as an IRC maxi ocean racer. No one cares if a big multi crosses the line first in the Fastnet race, it's the first IRC boat that mattered.

Just thinking out loud....if I tried to cover 1045 statute miles in one 24 hour period in my '91 Westy Camper, I could maybe do it, 20 hours straight at 52 mph average (2500 rpm), and then pull over and crash for 4 hours.

The Mod70 sails at 2 times wind speed in those conditions. I would think just the opposite regarding mono/multi in light air. It is heavy air where things start to even out more.

Re: 24 hour monohull distance record broken

If you watch the tracker, Comanche was ahead in the lighter airs, but probably due to a better decision by the navigator to go north before the ice gate. Once the wind kicked in, the Mod70 had a higher top gear, but only by 2-3 knots. We do know from the Sydney Hobart that Comanche is a dog in light air running (like half as fast) compared to Wild Oats due to all that wetted surface.

On another note, Lending Club (ex BP-VII) has just dropped out of this year's Transpac race. The will start today to try to set a record run to Hawaii, instead of waiting until Saturday to race against Wild Oats.

Re: 24 hour monohull distance record broken

My company is located a short distance from Hodgdon. We had the pleasure of working with them on this project, doing precision CNC work on carbon fiber as well as making other portions of the project. This thing is incredible to see in person. Aircraft carrier!

And yes, I'm not sure which toy cost more, either, but I have my hunches.

Yep, 908 NM in 24 hours is pretty incredible for a wind powered machine.
Wonder how long till one of the big tri's breaks the thousand mile barrier?

So really, it's "The fastest not all that fast boat ever built."? Sort of like the world's tallest midget?

For me, the fastest boat in a race (handicap starts aside) is the first one to finish. I don't care when the first IRC or CRAP boat (eventually) finishes. If it ain't first it ain't fastest.

Be fair now, sailing race boats are in classes. When you go to a drag race you don't expect a Corvette to be racing against a double A fueler. Each class has its winners and losers. Right now and for the foreseeable future the Tri's are the speedsters followed by the Cats with Monos a close third.

If Clark had have said - We will build the fastest AA fueler (mono) in the world, then fair enough - he didn't he said we will build the fastest drag car (sailboat) in the world. It is he who set the agenda and failed to adhere to it. No one else.

No, he adhered to it to the letter, or more importantly to the IRC rule.

No point building the fastest sailing boat if it does not adhere to any race regulations and therefore cannot enter any race unless it's invited in some non-official category.

Big multis can and do enter lots of races officially about the only race of any consequence that doesn't do the multihull thing these days is the S2H. And of course all distance speed records - which is what this was/is, are ratified by the WSSRC and it officially recognises all sailing boats irrespective of the amount of hulls.
