Re: Nautical miles per season
We got up to 14.9K on a 10m boat during a run/surf in a race this year.
I was banging 11 knots SOG on a broad reach during a race this spring on my Pearson 30. TWS was 32 kts. The knotmeter was pegged for much of the race. I was fairly stunned, thinking that was impossible.
The roar of the water rushing over the hull while I was down below taking a piss was impressive.
