IMOCA Open 50 24 hour record: We did 403+ Nautical Miles.
Wow! We broke the IMOCA Open 50 24 hour record: We did 403+ Nautical Miles. This is really impressive because we broke that record by close to 80 nautical miles and the 400 mile mark was a huge unattainable barrier for a long time on sailboats of any size. We knew it was a fast around the clock ride, and extreme. Now the numbers show them. Here are our two reporting positions 24 hours apart. You can verify my calculations:
lat 36.59 N
lon 128.36 W
lat 36.07 N
lon 136 53 W
This gives me a Distance of 403.1 Nautical miles at a course of 262º, 36′.7 True
