We were flying. The water was splashing, foaming and sizzeling. La Negra was leaning over at about 40˚, the stays started to vibrate and she was running like wild horse. Top speed we reached was 8.9 knots! Nothing broke and Karin didn't feel seasick. She actually pulled up all sails yesterday and was steering, I just adjusted the sail to get the speed.
