Very cool!

I am confused, ice boats regularly travel faster than the wind, as the OP said. When they proposed the challenge of faster than the wind did they mean propeller driven? or in a downwind direction? Did I miss that in the interview?


He did say stupidier than the internet, he doesn't include sailnet in that statement, does he?

Thanks for posting,
John
