After the Fastnet, I was thinking about this - who do you think has been the best-ever offshore boat?
Flyer - dominated the offshore scene in late 70's / early 80's
Steinlarger - wins the 1989/1990 Whitbread by winning every leg (and also gets line honours in the Fastnet 1989)
MACIF Ultime - fastest single-handed round the world
IDEC 3 - fastest crewed round the world
WOXII - fantastic record in Sydney-Hobart, but not much else - a flat-track bully?
Commanche - hiolds the monohull 24-hour record, as well as many prestigous line honours.
