Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

"Other comments indicate Swift has made at least 66 knots on occasion, and the Wiki says:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HSV-2_Swift
"Swift returned to Incat at Hobart in July 2013 for refit for sale or charter.[6]"

The Wikipedia entry says she saw an apparent wind of 66 kts while retrieving a helicopter. As we all know, that doesn't equal speed through the water. If only it did, would make for some lively days in the slot.

Bristol 31.1, San Francisco Bay
