    Which TP52 would you buy?

    The 2007 Botin "Oi!" just sold to a Hong Kong syndicate for somewhere around US$200,000. Now known as "Phoenix III" I believe

    What was your favorite race/moment?

    1. Race 8 hook, at 47 seconds to go Jimmy cries out "FFS"! 2. The no look tacks. There were a few. 3. Kyle Langfords rope.
  3. How about some races that are an entire lap of Bermuda? Double or triple points scoring? Now that would be something.

    Rolex Wild Oats XI

    BPV/Spindift 2 holds the 24hr record at 908nm. An average speed of 38 knots. The Atlantic record was also claimed at an average of 33 knots. Maxi-monos are pedestrian by comparison.

    The word I heard was that Cookson insisted on a disclaimer in order to build it because they believed (Farr 80 BG) scantlings were not strong enough for offshore work. They were right.
