October 13, 1988
Waited for a predictable October gale with 25 knot winds out of the west/northwest, off the land, leaving flat water on Vineyard Sound for two friends and I to sail the 50 foot racing trimaran Moxie entirely around the island of Martha's Vineyard in record time: four hours and fifty-five minutes!
Distance: 61 miles (~est.), Average speed: 12.4 knots
