Re: PSC 34/37 How fast (or slow)

I heard Crealok speaking about this issue.
He said that on a long trip you will get somewhere near the head of the group.
And the reason is that the comfort of the sailing will eliminate the fatigue that the others will suffer from, and thus they will have to hove- to and rest few times along the way.
I think that our boats are build heavier and they are stronger than average.
Most of the Crealocks I saw in my area were being sailed by friends that sail their boat at leisure and they are happy “as long as the boat moves”.
We are not racers.
Now I can go back to my Dark and Stormy.
