Longest way was the fastest way to the Caribbean

A report from German ARC category winner Hallberg-Rassy 37 “Thyra”:

We have happily arrived in St Lucia in the Caribbean. It was a fantastic trip over the Atlantic. We took the longest way of all in our group, 3 164 Nautical miles instead of 2 700 and 264 nautical miles more than No 2 in our category. But we had a very good turn of speed all the time and we were first to finish and also first after handicap in our group. There were 15 yachts up to 43 foot in our category H. Thyra sailed perfectly, like a Swiss watch. The only tool needed on the whole trip was to clear the fishes we caught and to fillet them.

Greetings from Lina, Werner and Rolf

A warm congratulation to the victory!
