Some good friends of mine left San Fran. in his Westsail 32 in the late seventies, stayed in the south pacific for a number of year then finished the trip around a few years ago. That boat is the meaning of blue water. They said that once they fitted a folding prop in NZ, they were able to gain a full day on a ten day passage, so there are things you can do to max your speed.
