Colour of fastest going stripe

G'day all! Buff Staysail here! Buff by name and Buff by nature!

Tillerman asked the very good question "Which colour go-faster stripe goes fastest?" and he's probably not alone. I wouldn't like to guess how many millions of $$$ are being spent by America's Cup teams on that very question.

Fortunately after much research yours truly has the definitive answer: red.

Yes, Red Stripe goes the fastest, particularly after a hot summers day out on the water - so not much chance of that in grey old Limey London.

Case closed.

This is Buff Staysail, stripe expert, over and out!
