2 hours 23 minutes, 23 seconds, almost 30 minutes inside the time set by Sir Ben Ainslie’s AC45 catamaran in 2013. . .

Somehow, that tri looks much more solid than an AC45. I like it.

They might as well bring it out to next year's R2AK, see what it can do...

I read that some rich guy not Larry offered to bring an AC45 to race, but wanted a couple of exemptions from the rules, like a support boat. The R2AK organizers turned him down.
