Hi Rob & Mark,
I really liked the Rare Bird video - way more impressive than its
previous sailing video. Please add more if you have extra video
footage. It would be interesting to see Blind Date sailing as well -
for comparison purposes.
I have a question about masts. In a past e-mail Rob mentioned that the
standard mast height for the Visionarry was (is?) 20m, however,
checking the brokerage section of the site, it is written there that
Rare Brid has a 17m mast.
With a taller mast, in that same ocean X wind conditions, do you think
the boat would be going faster or slower (because the mast would be
probably bending more)?
I also wonder what would be the top speed for the Visionarry Sport and
Cruiser. Do you have Velocity Prediction Curves for them?
