If you are looking for the 'n'th degree of speed, any Teflon filled wax will work well as it reduces the dynamic frictional characteristics of the topsides/hull.
There are lots of offerings of teflon filled speed wax used mostly by the top notch dinghy racers. However, on-deck and above the gunnels this stuff is too slippery to be safe and for that application consider to use a non-skid 'deck wax' to be 'safer' - especially on the molded non skid.
