That sounds more inline. 7-8 bs, 6-7 tws, 14-15 aws. When its that light the ap gets pulled forward pretty quick. The photos didn't look like there was 15 true, I was trying to understand how the aws could be lower then bs with those conditions
Anyway, congrats on the new boat.

Here's more fodder from one of Chris's fans on his website:
"We've got flat seas an apparent wind
angle of 60 deg keeping us on the rhumb. At this moment I'm looking at a boat speed of 13kts in 16kts of true. This is sustained speed, no surfing and no crap. We've matched true wind speed on numerous occasions and topped true about once each hour (documented on video). Let me repeat: NO SURFING AND NO CRAP. These numbers are good and GPS
confirmed. Take 'em to the bank. Put 'em on your website. I'd stake Penfield's life on these numbers. Talk about sweet spot-JESUS. What else can I say. The ride is as smooth as glass and she is itching for more. We are all in complete awe. I don't think I've ever seen it all come together quite like this. You know what - it's getting better as I write. We're now doing a sustained 15-16kts in 17-18kts of true. Once again; NO SURFING AND NO CRAP."
