Paolo, dude, your anti-miutlihull bias is now getting ridiculous.
It was a fast trip.
On a fast boat.

Look, I get that you don't like boats with more than one hull. You have a whole thread of "interesting boats" without a single cat or tri, arguably the most interesting boats of all.
But to denigrate the record because it was under favourable conditions is just silly.

That would be like denying the portuguese explorers and sailors of antiquity accomplished anything because they simply bumbled from one uncharted shore to another and picked theri weather window to the best of their limited ability.
