Maybe that should be the new way to say "wanna go crazy?!" :P
I don't think this qualifies for a "vacation" but definitely looks like tones of fun to me! :woohoo:

Ben hit a peak of 53.8 knots that's 61.9 mph :woohoo:

Other fun facts I've read over the years about speed sailing.

Over 45 mph:
There is such low pressure on the one side of the fin water can start to boil.
Your body is 50% of the drag.
