Pelagic Sailing Club Features Brian Hancock at August 25th Meeting

August 25th, Savin Hill Yacht Club, Dorchester, MA - Brian Hancock will answer the question: Can a Monohull Ever Sail Faster Than a Multihull?

One of the most experienced offshore sailors in the United States with over a quarter million offshore miles logged racing both fully crewed as well as solo - Brian Hancock will share his latest project "Grabbing The Dream". This new multimedia presentation gives Pelagic Sailing Club Members and guests a close look at what it takes to build a monohull capable of sailing faster than a same-sized multihull. A monohull that is predicted to sail at speeds consistently over 40 knots and cover 1,000 nautical miles in a single day.

In 2010, Hancock created SpeedDream, the Quest to Build the Worlds Fastest
Monohull. With a long list of innovative features such as a narrow,
wave-piercing bow, an extreme canting keel that actually flies out of the water, to a radical leeward lifting foil, SpeedDream is set to change the way we look at sailboats, and their relationship to speed.

Brian Hancock has competed in three Whitbread Round the World Races (currently known as the Volvo Ocean Race). He's a highly sought out inspirational speaker, given thousands of talks in over 15 countries, author of seven books and his book on sails and sailmaking; Maximum Sail Power, has become an industry standard. His new book, Grabbing the Dream, will be coming out in 2012. Hancock lives in Marblehead, Massachusetts.

Brian offers two complimentary downloads

- Around the World in 79 Days by Cam Lewis at
Brian Hancock author, adventurer, inspirer - Specials

- Race to Freedom by Vlad Murnikov at speeddream - Specials

Pelagic Sailing Club meets at Savin Hill Yacht Club, Dorchester, MA, on the
second floor at 6:30pm for social hour and pizza, 7:15pm for meeting, 7:45pm
guest speaker. For more information check out our website at:
