Forgot.
think it was 79/80

Blufin 21' Class IIIC. you dont see many offshore boats go like she did. fek he was going quick. If he had made it to the mile I reckon he could have nudge the Nurse Bros off top slot.

A few in the archive somewhere, even some that have broke too
Baz was going quicker that any 2 or 4 ltr phantom at the time by about 20+ mph ( but as he never made the mile it didn't count, off the record. the call was over 80 from the observers). Changed the deck after this & never went the same totally trashed the handling.
At the end of the day it's all possibly dangerous @ 50+ whatever your in, cat, mono, Tri, motorbike, car, airplane................
But thats why we do it... nice to know you are still alive eh !!!!!
If you want safe buy one & lock yaself in it.

I raced the boat for a year after that - and it was a complete bitch in anything other than flat calm - and all the races I did were rough or choppy at best.

But it was still amazingly quick in the calm and went round turns more like a circuit cat.
