HiQ first to finish on new record time
2019-07-02 - ÅF Offshore Race
HiQ 4 finished 16:04:09 with new record time. The official record on average speed is now 13,01 knots. The old record with CQS 2017 was 11,02 knots. That means that HiQ 4 sailed ÅF Offshore Race in 27 hours 4 minutes and 9 seconds. That is 4 hours 37 minutes and 26 seconds faster than CQS in 2017. Talking about polishing is an understatement.
