That vid brings back happy memory's but it was bloody hard work to go fast in that water state with no safety cover .

I had seen that video titled with 115 kph in the past, but this video from October 2009 and this article show they were running on open water - which makes the speed seem even more impressive.

Whichever way the record goes now, its going to have to be efficient. Brute force and big balls wont be enough - the big balls will still be needed though.
Sailrocket say their 65 knots was done in 30 knots of wind. Its definitely a lot more efficient.
