Northern Bay 36 - Modified
Broke the 40 mph barrier only once, and it wasn't on the course.
3-4' seas going into a headwind, but I was not comfortable with what we had adjusted on the engine to get that, timing was way too radical an engine with stock components.

Sure was fun though, didn't bother looking at the speed when we swung around and headed back in with the wind and waves though.
