Great Job! I have already watched it a couple of times.
That first day sailing looked to be very "interesting" !

Thank you John, great footage of the event. It is good to see that the boat goes well ( 9+ kts ) with a bit of a breeze.
Can't wait to get my boat into the water ...

Cheers,

Peter

Wow, that boat was flying!!
Really amazing to see her plowing along at that speed, for so long, also a little terrifying.

I agree with all these posts - and especially with Wayne's observation, who himself has also used a spinnaker on his own PS. Love the videos.

All the best,
Mark

Thanks guys! glad you all liked it. I heard about a boat on day one that kept up 5 knots with nothing but a mast up with no sail. It was really blowing. I saw a barge going the opposite direction with the spray from the wave going over the bow. It was a bit too far away to get some good video and I kinda had my hands full : )

John,
Just watched your 2018 Texas 200 video. You stated that you upgraded your solar panel in the video? What panel did you decide to use and how did you mount it?
Greatly enjoyed your video.
Thanks for any info,
Mike
