New Speed Record on the Water Under Sail

Friday, Sept. 4, 2009 the French hydrofoil trimaran broke the 50 knot barrier for speed under sail hitting 51.36 knots. For you lands people that’s 59.064 mph. Not many power boats go that fast.

  1. okay, so 60mph on a sailboat is ridiculously fast, but I started looking at some more info on this boat at http://yachtpals.com/sailing-records-3076

    those guys going ~60mph on a kite-board with no protective gear is just bloody amazing!
