VESTAS Sailrocket 2 first 40 + knot run

VESTAS Sailrocket 2 sails over 40kn for the first time the day after she sailed over 30kn for the first time. The wind was 17-20kn. The pitch of the main foil had been increased in the morning to help the rear float clear the water it obviously worked. The first boat (VSR1) took 3 and a half years to get over 40kn. VESTAS Sailrocket 2 did it in 3 and a half days.
