Nariida sets Monaco-Saint Tropez Record

On Wednesday October 20, 1999 at 22h 43min 55sec local time, Nariida set the new speed record on the course between Monaco and Saint Tropez. She covered the 45-mile course in only 3 hours, 4 minutes and 40 seconds giving an average speed of 15 knots and with the highest recorded boat speed on the GPS of 23.9 knots!

The owner was onboard together with the Norwegian skipper Knut Frostad who said after the arrival: "We had between 35 and 50 knots of wind all the way in darkness. It was definitely my most scary entrance to any bay and harbour ever, as we were doing about 15 knots with only a tiny mainsail up with about ten metres of sight and serious waves! I think we have pushed the limits of the Wallys to a new level."
