Mari Cha’s 525 miles in one day(21.7mph) is great for a monohull but the record for a sailboat,I think, is held by the woman team sailing one of the big “G” cats built to compete with Playstation(forget the name) @ 647miles in 24hr(30.8 mph).
Mari Cha, however ,is capable of another 14 mph more or less…

Yves Parlier’s boat is gonna be a hell of alot faster than anything else about judging by the claims in the yachting press over here, seems like hes gonna have a crack at the speesailing record before dashing across the atlantic. Madness!

If its not blowing it sucks!
