tommyt is on a distinguished road
Just under 90' of speed demon. I think I read that the mainsail luff is a little over 110', so that is one tall rig. The boat and spars are all carbon fibre, and the keel cants 100 degrees in seconds.

Not your average day sailer. Although there were no records, except for number of flies this year, Genuine Risk was first to cross followed by Windquest. Windquest won the Port Huron to Mackinac race.
