New Speedsailing Outright World Records

Subject to WSSRC ratification, Robert Douglas (USA, Black Dog, Cabrinha) set a new outright world record today with 49.84 knots. Second became Sebastien Cattelan (FRA, Genetrix) with 49.59 knots, also well over the old record set by Antoine Albeau (FRA, Starboard) in winter this year.

The womens outright record is now at a stunning 45.20 knots by Sjoukje Bredenkamp (RAS, Naish).

The chase for the holy gral of speed sailing, the elusive 50 knots mark, is still on at the Luderitz Speed Challenge 2008 in Namibia till the 13th of October.
