På Sailing Anarchy finns en story från Australienska Mumm 30:n ”Immigrant” och deras senaste race. Kul läsning!
Tack till Emil för tipset!
…all is fixed, up goes the main and red chute and we are off……21 knots. We had a top speed of 22.3 knots. The course to S2 is dead proud which means we have to sail angles and an additional 20 miles. This is the disadvantage of A sails. Douse the red chute and up with the big white mother……with caution. We had 22 knots of wind. I must add we had crashed about 80 less times then last year at this stage. We can count on ONE hand how many times we have crashed this year. Big white was easy to control and our average speed up round 13 knots with lots of 18 & 20 knots bursts for a minute or more. Time for another red Bull and a Tony Ferguson Steak and 3 vegetables I.e.: shake.
