2017/2018 Volvo Race.

Well, my wife and I have just finished watching almost all of the Volvo Race on Redbull.tv and now there is no way that I will be able to get my wife to try an offshore sail. Oh well.

Paul,

Promise her you will not exceed 25 kn., and will go no farther north or south than 45 deg.

Should take care of most of her concerns.

I have heard that F82's will do 20 km easily but I'm not sure how many times the hull will rotate end to end at 25 km.
