Re: Sydney Hobart Record

Yes, I read that but the importance seemed relative me. I mean, it is a record but that has nothing to to with the record of the Sydney- Hobart race. Regarding that one you are restricted to the conditions you have on given date. On a record like this one, one waits for the better possible weather window (that means big downwind winds).

Well, I can only hope that the Sydney- Hobart, besides a great race starts also to be a seamark record, one that other crews will be disposed to beat with adequate weather windows and equally fast boats.

I guess that wild Oates will not be the boat to beat that record, it is an upwind optimized boat...and if you could chose the weather...you will have downwind winds.

Around there there are more big multihulls with potential to beat the record?

By the way, why there are not big multihulls racing the Sydney-Hobart?

Regards

Paulo
