Just six days after Paul Larsen in the Vestas Sailrocket 2 broke the world speed record in Walvis Bay, Namibia, subject to confirmation by WSSRC, he has now sailed a 500 meter course at an average speed of 65.42 knots! This is close to ten knots faster than the previous record set by kiteboarder Rob Douglas of 55.65 knots – a record that stood for two years. In just over a week, the Sailrocket 2 has broken that record three times. The Sailrocket 2 peaked at 68 knots during the record breaking run, sailing in winds of 27 to 32 knots. Yesterday, we posted about the attempt to by the kiteboarding community to reclaim the record. The Sailrocket team has now set the bar very, very high. Thanks to Nunzio for passing on the news.
