Nope...Jason's boat is less than half our displacement. In 2 knots of breeze we sat there watching him pull away. When we did have wind, we would make lots of ground on him but never enough to catch him. I would estimate that the average wind speed for the first 8 hours was only 4-5 knots...our gennaker needs 6 knots to stay full.
In light air, he can sail circles around us without a doubt and I'll have to live with the friendly bashing until we can get a club race on a windy day.
Voloce' on the horizon ahead of us.
