Clearly earning the title of "skipper"

Wow, a whole 60 miles per hour, huh? Who knew man could go that fast.
Is it really that much more dangerous than going 60 on a motorbike? Particularly when comparing a boat with rescue crews on the nearby beach, to a motorbike on an average freeway.
I mean, I don't know. I know nothing about sailing. But it seems more fun than dangerous.
As a late Victorian gentleman recently arrived from the 1887, I will admit that I am quite impressed by the ingenuity and daring shown by these gallant young men. Quite impressed indeed. However, I must warn them to temper their Hubris with Caution! In my leisure time I keep abreast with the latest Academic Journals of Science and Engineering, and it is the opinion of Modern Science that Man's physiology simply can not survive the stresses and rigours of such speeds!
"Balls" they may posess, my dear Mister Chairs, but of good sense? None!
60mph is a TAD different on the water than on roads.
There's complicated physics behind it all that I won't get into.

So is that like 30 furlongs per hourglass?

On water, that is terrifyingly fast.

To get an idea of what it's like take your car out on a shitty, pothole'd dirt road and take it up to 60mph and enjoy...or drive along railroad tracks. Although railroad tracks aren't themselves on a surface that has a lot of local deviation.
