Correction: Spawn has been faster. The completed last year in 1 day 9 hours 7 minutes. That was the fourth fastest time ever and the fastest monohull.Spawn is the monohull record holder.
It's a custom 22' skiff designed by OH Rodgers, built by the owner Jeff Linton. It has (I think) a carbon rig from Melges 20, big water ballast tanks under the hiking racks and an enormous assy.
It holds the two fastest overall times for monohulls in EC history, the fastest was 1 day 12 hours 46 minutes. I think the only boats who've ever gone faster was Jamie Livingston in a Tornado at 26 hours 2 minutes and Randy Smyth in his Sizzor at 1 day 11 hours and change.
Spawn is a beast.
Spawn will keep going when the get to Key Largo this year and sail up the Atlantic coast to Ft. Clinch where they will switch to a paddle craft and paddle 100 miles or so up the St. Marys River, portage the boat 45 miles to the Suwannee, then downriver 230 miles to the Gulf of Mexico and Cedar Key where they will jump back in Spawn to sail down to Ft. Desoto. They will be fun to watch.
