The Maltese Falcon

The Maltese Falcon may not be news to some of you but it was the first time i had seen it. WOW! She is amazing! I wonder how fast she can cross the Atlantic... all depends on wind i suppose.

It motors at 13 and can sail at 18-20. Best recorded day was 335 nautical miles, so that's averaging 14 kph.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things y%^&*.....oh never mind. 90% of the people on sailing forums already use that as their signature! I'm not a conformist.

How high can she point? How to you tack her, or do you have to jibe (or "wear ship" as they used to call it?).

Impressive, but kinda strange-looking. I like the sloop look of the "Mirabella V" better.
