CONGRATULATIONS PAUL AND THE VESTAS TEAM – We posted your attempt on Friday morning telling our XS readers to follow you on your twitter feed because after your last performance we thought this was going to be it…
We are no strangers to speed (some of us helped develop sails for the Hobie/Ketterman Trifoiler and we were having great fun doing 40 knots in 1995)… so it was no surprise to us that you were on the right path.
When we saw on your website the green light was on with over 20 knots of wind we told readers to watch you…to possibly watch history being made…and you made it!
So congratulations on you and your team’s tenacity and ‘never give up’ spirit. What you achieved on your budget and hard work is amazing. Here’s cheering you on to 65 knots and beyond!!!
