Re: Reynolds 21 in Gusts 25 mph

I used to have a Stiletto 27, so I know the feeling. I miss her.

The trouble is it looks too easy. I took a couple out on sea trials when I sold her and they had to stare at the GPS to beleive the speed numbers I was giving them. When the water is flat it's just easy.

The new AC72s sure don't look like they're doing 35 knots... but they are.
