After reading all the comments here one can only sit back and wonder at the sophmoric egotism and gang mentality of the various factions vying tp be the one with the strongest argument. As a fact not one here that I can see has personally set any sailing records of any sort and are just blindly cheering for their side with google
Maybe the fastest sailing vessel ever was
Flying Cloud which had a noon to noon run of 374 miles in 1851 all man powered systems. The more salient point being , doing something meaningful in their quest.
At 1782 tons I seriously doubt this record
will ever be broken when it comes to the ton/mile measure of speed and distance.
And imagine, as some might be able, no computers
, sailing instruments, even flashlights. No safety gear
No possible help or backup of any sort. No preposterous gadgetry. All these cats, tri's, and monos have one thing in common, they are playtoys of the .01% powerd by wind
driven ego as are the defenders who comfortably extol their vises and virtues for...what?
vises and virtures
