60 knots.... in a SAILboat

About 70mph, powered only by wind.

If you think it looks like it's can actually fly.  That's not so good.

Looks like this boat can sail only with the wind to port. Still.. fast, scary fast.

Hi, I love your post! I'd like to add a little bit. Port is always the left-hand side of the boat when you are facing the bow. Because “right” and “left” can become confusing sailing terms when used out in the open waters, port is used to define the left-hand side of the boat as it relates to the bow, or front.
thanks a lot! ~ Rachel Brown
