That is valid to multihulls or monohulls alike. Anyway there are separated records for monohulls and multihulls.

Maybe you should read again what I wrote, it seems you did not understood.


I apologize, paolo. I misunderstood what you meant when you said "the record is relative'". If you say you were not denigrating the record, I have a hard time figuring out how what you wrote was at all complimentary, when your entire post was basically a slam, pointing out why the record run wasn't really a record run.
