Rocket Factory Trimarans, A preliminary update from Scott Cook on the RAW30's sailing performance

From the Rocket Factory Trimarans/Airplay RAW 30 website:

Scott McCook was in Xiamen from 10th to 13th of October to test sail and demonstrate the RAW30. Scott has written a detailed review with some great pics by Karen Otton which will be published in due course. The following is an extract of one of Scott's emails to me shortly after he sailed the boat.

Tony Grainger:  

Day 1 was in light breeze of around 6 knots but the Raw could pump up to 15 even in that!

Day 2 a much better with breeze over 20 knots + of breeze! Just to let things settle in, we tried out a double reef which worked really well and the Raw was powered up even like that.

Day 3, just a few hours ago, with breeze up to 20 knots and a single reef. Well the Raw really showed how powerful she really is! Was a brilliant day with Raw pegging 21.5 knots! Its weird how you now come down to 15 knots and think you are not moving.
