Catch me if you can!

Paul Larsen and his team “Sail Rocket” have shattered the 60 knots (65.45 knots over 500m or 121 km/h) in Walvis Bay in Namibia. This is a real technological feat and the result of years of hard work. Congratulations to him and his team.

The team is currently in Walvis Bay, Namibia and the least we can say is that there is now a huge gap between the record holder  and the runner up (55.65 kts held by the kiteboader Rob Douglas).

The 500m record:

1 – 2012 – Paul Larsen (sailrocket) – 65.45 kts  World Record Speed ​​Sailing

2 – 2010 – Rob DOUGLAS (kiteboarding) – 55.65 kts  Kitesurf World Record

3 – 2010 – Sébastien CATTELAN (kiteboarding) – 55.49 kts

4 – Alexander Caizergues (kiteboarding) – 54.93 kts

5 – Sébastien SALERNO (kiteboarding) – 54.28 kts

6 – Sylvain Hoceini (kiteboarding) – 52.90

7 – Antoine Albeau (windsurfing) – 52.05 kts Windsurf World Record
