Don't forget that the racing division set sail two days before. Size by size the fast cats are ahead of monohulls as it was to be expected on a downwind sail "kind" of race.

Last year a XC 42 made a fantastic passage. This year we have a XC 50 doing the same. I guess that I am not being wrong into considering the X yacht cruising range as one of the best range of contemporary blue water boats

Check out its position, in the middle of the fastest performance boats, without being one. It is the magenta one with a crown. Next to it, also with a crown a light grey one, a Swann 48 is also making a great crossing.
