Obviously not an official record but NED 7916 claims 19.6kts. Search J80 on Utube to check it out.

We hit 19.8 knots during our Atlantic crossing. Three reefs, normal jib and self steering. Don't know if the fact that no one was at the helm voids the record? :smile:

I know we were over 20 but I could not see the speedo very well with the spray. It said 20.xx. -Jay
