Hay dog,

Can you do that on your boat with training wheels?

No, since my boat isn't quite so big... or overpowered... But I bet I could dust your boat without much trouble.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

There is a Swiss flag flying off the transom, but if you look carefully, you'll also see the French tricolor to windward of it. L'Hydroptère was built in France and based on Quiberon Bay, on the Atlantic coast. This winter they're moving her to Marseille, according to the website. There may be some Swiss sponsors. The French don't get hung up much about flags.

Was the 50 kt barrier broken? I knew 50 mph was exceeded but I thought that 50 kt was still being chased.

You may be right CapnHand,
according to Wiki - Finian Maynard holds the World Speed Sailing Record at 48.7 knots.
But this info is from Aug. '06 and I'm pretty sure I read something last yr that they've upped it - then again maybe not.

BTW are you in real estate?

Rob,

I was looking here: http://www.sailspeedrecords.com/comp...age/Itemid,10/

It seems to be up to date for 2007, the last posted record I saw was April '07. I'm certain it won't be much longer.

There are many different catagories for sailing speed records, from 1/2 km to around the world. Sure enough, Hydroptere owns one of them. The claim is valid.

I own some real estate but I don't sell or trade it for a living. I just thought "location, location, location" was humorous.

Capn you probably got it right. If 50 kts. has been broken it was probably unofficial. I've done maybe 35 kts. or so on a windsurfer, and I can tell you that water is harder than concrete at that speed.
Don't wanna down grade Hydroptere's achievement, but the smaller the vessel the greater the feel of speed.
And you're right about location - I wish I was(were) in a different one.
