Below there is not a race but a long distance trip.
60+ year old Polish guy did 365km in 12hrs.
Amazing! Full respect for his trip and for its presentation. It's in Polish but worth to check out:

That's interesting because it was across the wind and Nicolas Parlier won all 3 races. At the start of one (at 3:24 in the video), he is stuck in the water downwind of the leeward mark at the start but still must have won it.

He was on an Aguera board with a Spotz foil.
