You are really hopeless and your knowledge about boats is a very narrow one.

Believing that a 32ft Laurin is faster than a Passport 40 and that a Malo 43 is faster than a Bavaria Match 42 while cruising on a transat, giving equal conditions in what regards routing and sailing crew competence shows a great ignorance about those boats and their possible performance.
