I must admit the boat is actually surprisingly fast for weighing this much. For example, we were only 25 seconds slower than a brand new Dufour 36E Performance (ok, not a light boat either) (see attached pic, sorry for low res!) pimped out with square top main, skippered by Anna Drougge (whitbread + volvo ocean race sailor and swedish match race champion). Total time for us was just over 11 hours during 4 days.
