Well.. Win the thread at least
Ya know.. this is the show where everything's made up and the points don't matter
Looking for Top speed and highest average speed.
Needs to be a 'class legal' boat so we are on a level playing field.. The exception here is crew weight.. Carry as little or as much as you need to generate the big numbers...
Average speed should be your speed covering a distance of at least 1 mile. (5280 feet)
My first attempt..
This was on my 2005 H16.. I was sailing Solo.. I weigh 206lbs at last check. The GPS unit I am using is a app on my Android phone.. It has been provably accurate against other GPS units in my unscientific testing.. I keep it secure in a waterproof container tied to my center tramp lacing..
Recorded August 4th, Clinton Lake, Lawrence KS.
HIGHEST WIND SPEED 17 HIGHEST WIND DIRECTION N (360)
HIGHEST GUST SPEED 23 HIGHEST GUST DIRECTION N (10)
AVERAGE WIND SPEED 7.0
(if anyone knows a better way to find wind history I am all ears... This is from NOAA. and I don't think tells the best story.. I am sure NOAA has more complete info.. I just don't know where to look)
