A few of the lads and I went on a mission to crack this year’s speed record, and we succeeded! Â The Cunning Ham, Afterguy, Gadget and I topped 9.3 knots on a gust as we were blanketing our friends in Coyote — you’ve go to check out the vids.
We could have used more ballast!
Actually our original mission was to practice a few hoists, jibes and douses with the Spinnaker. Â When I asked if anyone was in the mood, the response was immediately and unequivocal: Â NO! Â Good thing too, especially when nature showed us yet another gear of intensity (hint: Â over 8 knots on mainsail alone).
