I seriously doubt that it can do 25 knots in 25 knots of wind.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

24.6 knots achieved in a documented race.
I'd say sonofasailor had a helluva ride!

On the way back from Block Island yesterday, the GPS clocked 6.7 kts SOG, not speed over water. Wind was at 18 kts, but we were heading into 5-7 ft seas . . . slowed us down considerably, but still not bad for a 9 ton ketch motorsailer without motor power .

With the 90hp motor - I've clocked 10 kts.

Conditions

We've moved Eclipse at better than 12.5 knots dead downwind with only a reefed main hoisted. Of course it was blowing more than 40 in the puffs, and they'd closed Laguardia Airport because of the wind. The bow wave was shooting spray so wide it was making rainbows out by the end of the boom. http://www.stw.fr/album_photo/grande/ph_alb_11742_2_gr.jpg

I don't think I would use full sails in 25K winds, and if I did I'm not sure that it would make me go faster. My knot meter has gone as high as 7.8 (it was less than 25K winds)but only for a brief period. We seem to hit 7.0 on a fairly regular basis and is sustainable when the wind is right, we consider that good sailing. There is no way your boat will only go 5.2 knots, we motor faster than that.
When I need to get into line to enter the marina with the powerboaters I regulary get 6.4 knots on the out of calibrated knot meter, I think that's all the saildrive will push. I've been told the rudder will flutter at about 7+ knots, that happens alot. As far as my healing goes, I coulden't say, we rocked most of the way. I had the main full and the hanked on 100% jib all the while very out of trim, also some very presant weather helm, I know I should have reefed.

Dude I was kidding that boat would flip over at 40 knots! I dont know of a Tri that can do 40 knots? Maybe a 200 foot tri could, boy that would be fun who has one?

I do know if you had 10 knots of wind it can do 8.8 knots! I would love to know what speeds they get in higher winds?
