The 100kt Sailboat - is it possible? - Dr Colin Palmer
For years sailboats seem to be limited to speeds of around 40knots.  Now this is routine for many multihulls and sailboards pushed the records to more than 50knots.  Most recently, Vestas SailRocket has hit 70knots.  Is this near the upper limit of what is possible, or might we one day see the 100knot sailboat?
