Has been known to hit 40 mph!!! They wouldn't qualify for 3RR as they are single handers but they could do the Tricycle winter mini 3RR.

A, we don't often get the wind speeds these boats require.

B, it is even rarer to get the wind in the right direction on the river

C, on a river they would never get up to flying speed between tacks on the river.

D, they might get up flying on Barton or Hickling but one bit of weed and you'd come to a very rapid stop....
