Is the Alberg 30 really the fastest of the three? Someone wrote this but I was under the impression that the more recently designed vega with a longer LWL (23'2" vs. the Alberg's 21'8") was faster. I understand that in heavy winds the Alberg will heel and the waterline will lengthen b/c of the overhangs but didn't the Vega hold the record for the fastest Atlantic crossing at one point. Please correct me if i'm wrong.
