    Comanche Sails FAST!!!

    Jim Clark's 100 ft carbon Hodgdon built machine Comanche took off (literally) for Charleston, SC last week and I grabbed a couple of video clips and still photos of her from the air as she sped South. She was on her way to Charleston to meet the ship that will take her to Sydney for the Sydney to Hobart race in December. We checked her speed and at times Kenny had her doing 30 knots! Awesome!!
