    I had my friends son hike out so that we could maintain 10 knots in a Catalina 36

    We were on a reach, and he gave us two knots. We sailed from Catalina to Long Beach in a little over three hours. My previous record was 4 1/2.

    No kidding! I thought that my GPS was messed up. But we had flat seas and awesome wind.
