Under sail

"the wind was holding steady and the 46.3 was sailing effortlessly on a reach. It took a moment for me to realize we were still topping 7 knots; the motion is that smooth. I conned my way back onto the helm and we put the boat through her paces. Sheeting in tight, we found that the 46.3 maintained speed at less than 40 degrees apparent. If you were racing the boat, you could definitely hit upwind targets at 32 to 35 degrees apparent with a little coaxing" credit 'Sailing Magazine'
