It was sailed well, I will give him that, and the currents in Sidney Basin will win or lose a race for you, period. But when your going down wind side by side and he just takes off it really makes one wonder.
Check out the finish times for Temenos yourself at Canoe Bay Sailing Club's website. Pay particular attention to his elapsed times. He is in the hunt with the Div. I boats.
What's his secret, other than he weighs about 1/2 to 2/3's of what my boat weighs, I have no idea.
Maybe it's an empty shell down below with canvas bunks and a head in the middle of the salon. The BBQ out back is there just to throw you off.
