Re: ARC - Gunboat 62

Here you can see a sister boat:


If I ever should get cured of my dislike of catamarans (and if I could afford it ) this one would be high on my list.
So no doubt in my mind this boat can be very fast.

But “nearly 30 knots”? No way, Josť.
Almost 20 would be more like it.


This is the one that is racing the ARC:

Here once again, reduce the reported speed of 19 knots by at least 1/3.
Of course still very enjoyable , but in my honest opinion even more without cheating with the log.

As we unfortunately see in too many videos.

Best regards,
