Speed Record for Cal 40

Any one know of top speeds hit in Cal 40? I presume this would be a transpac speed.

25 knots.

Why do you want to know?

Fungus Amungus, Seriously, 25 knots? I have a friend with a mumm 36 that just hit 16.7 in the Chicago to Mac. I have a 1966 Cal 40 and have been restoring her for 2 yrs. I did one mac race but was wondering how she could add up in the downwind numbers, kind of comparing it to a go fast mumm design. Thanks!
