anything beat a 28 skater?

any European boats beat a 28 skater in serious offshore racing? considering they do about 118 mph and can eat waves alive, i was wondering if anything can beat it..

thanks

The Xcat series in Dubai and that area is very competitive, and Chris Parsonages new boat is quick, the Ocke Mannerfelt designed Victory team boats are also fast.

The series is now delayed until later in the year because of the volcano disruptions to air traffic, so we'll have to see how the season finishes up.

Charles Burnett III's 28 was usually the eaten, not the eater.

So glad you're here! I've been biting my tongue all afternoon.
