All fell apart when they gave Wettpunkt speed as 240MPH

Quote "visible horizon just two miles ahead, and at top speed you are there in 30 seconds"

thats 2 mile in 30 sec so 4 mile in a min 60min x 4 miles =240 MPH

dont you just love Journalist licence, crew must cringe.

Moral, Dont believe everything you read

I think it's a great artical, and the last two paragraphs had me pissing myself.

Bring it on..

Still reckon Team AMF should be over here 'giving it large' in P1

Can't think who they may be referring to?

"Hannes and Ed each light up cigars while they wait to take the boat for refuelling. Mid-smoke, one particular official - a hard-hatted, pot-bellied jobsworth with teeth like the wreck of the Mary Rose - strides over and authoritively reprimands them. They comply, but Hannes' weary half-smile says it all. Ripping across the ocean at 100mph, the only rules worth anything are your own."
