The VX-One fleet took a page out of the mothies’ book when they started going for top speed bragging rights whenever it was too windy to race. At last weekend’s McIntosh Cup in Savannah, Andrew Brennan caught Brian Bennett and crew on video as they upped the ante to a zippy 24 knots while two sail-reaching in the ultralight sporty. The VX is quietly marching along, gaining converts from other small boat classes thanks to its design (the most modern of any of the production sporties) as well as its dinghylike feel and sub-500 lb weight. Think they’ll get to 25? 30? Tell ‘em so here.
