20-30 knots is not unlikely and 55 knots is possible...

The speed of the sailboat is calculated by dividing the distance traveled by the time taken. In this case, the speed of the sailboat is 0.71 m/s (100m / 140s).

Maintain present course and speed.

Hi There is not an average speed. It depends on the length and wind direction and speed

Speed up to pass in front of the sailboat

To determine the hull speed of a sailboat, multiply the square root of the length at the water line by 1.34. The answer will be in nautical miles per hour.

That would be the deck.

Depends. Size is not the predominant factor when determining speed for a sailboat. Depends on the wind condidtions

------------------------ A sailboat's speed is directly proportional to wind speed and hull design. The longest distance in 24 hours and the fastest circumnavigation are currently held by a trimaran and the short-course speed record is currently is currently held by a multihull built specifically for the attempt. For you and I sailing our fiberglass monohulls on the weekends, we are having a great day if we hit 10 or 12 knots. ------------------------ A sailboat can reach 30 miles per hour. There are two general types of sailboats, displacement type (monohull) and non-displacement type (catamarans, trimarans). The top speed of a displacement sailboat is based upon its waterline length because it sits in the water and cannot climb above the wall of water in front of it as it travels. This is calculated by taking the square root of its waterline length and multiplying by 1.3. The top speed of a non-displacement sailboat is limited by the sailboat design, the speed of the wind, and their point of sail - these sailboats can go much faster than the speed of the wind that is powering them, and are the fastest sailboats.
