Racing boats? There are no racing boats on this transat, not even modern performance boats of a similar size. What do you mean be choosing slower speeds? you mean that some boats are better sailed than others or made a better routing? you can bet on that.

You can see that a Malo 43, is way ahead of a Bavaria match 42 that means that the Malo 43 is way faster than the Bavaria Match 42...right?
