  • Tsunami Tuesday – Hydroptere Record Smashed!

    12 Oct 2010 : Tsunami Tuesday – Hydroptere Record Smashed!



    It’s official – after today the Hydroptere is no longer the fastest sailing vessel. It’s previous record of 51.36 was broken numerous times today by Kite surfers!







    2nd Lagoon Luderitz lived up to all expectations today with many new records being broken.

    Scores of competitors dramatically improved on their Personal Best sailing speeds and 5 competitors reached 50 knots and more!




    Winds of around 40 were recorded. The new Speed Channel is proving to be a definite winner for competitors. Once again the organizers of the Luderitz Speed Event have produced record breaking conditions for competitors to be recorded in the Speed Sailing Hall of Fame.



    We are waiting for speeds to be officiated by the World Speed Sailing Record Council (WRSSC) to officiate these incredible new speed sailing times, which will be released later tonight.
    We shall share these historical results with you as soon as the WRSCC officiates them!

    • A Big Breeze Conclusion In Lagos
      by Photoboy


      The GC32 Lagos Cup, the pre-Worlds for next month’s GC32 World Championship, concluded in big breeze. Despite the flying catamaran fleet heading out an hour early, by the end of the first race, the sea state was still relatively flat but with the wind averaging 22 knots and gusting to 27 it was ‘survival’ for some of the 10 teams, so PRO Stuart Childerley made the welcome decision to abandon racing.

      Otherwise the historic maritime port on Portugal’s
