New absolute world speed sailing record.

The Hydropter absolut sailing record (51.36K) :

YouTube - Hydrofoil : world speed sailing record for Hydroptere at 51.36 knots

was beaten by a much smaller sail craft . Now it stands at more than 100Km/h

It is going to take many years before they work out all the problems they are going to find with the boat, to make it able to do that without breaking.

If you look for instance to the Hydropter, it take them almost 20 years to make it sufficiently strong to make it an offshore boat, but not strong enough to risk a Transat record attempt.

The fastest offshore long distance racers are still the big multihulls that are going to compete on the Barcelona race and also on the "Route du Rhum". This Transat is going to start this month and those huge boats are going to be sailed SOLO. I am not easily impressed, but a guy able to race solo one of those monsters has my admiration.

Regards

Paulo

HI Paulo,
Sorry to revive this old thread.
I just came across your post in my Trimaran research.
How did this race turn out?

The subject is not dead. The Hydro Maxi is a project from the Hydroptere team. They plan to build a kind of a larger version of the Hydroptere, with 30/32m to make an attempt to the Jules Verne record. There are also non limited races like "La Route du Rhum" (Transat) where they can aim for victory. But that boat is going to cost an huge amount of money and I think the project is waiting for better days and the money to come.

Oh No, I see it coming. Next legislation hearing - speeding ticket for sailboat operator and mandatory seat belt and air bags .

Thanks for the post, Paulo. I wish they have kept the original sound track instead of the lousy music in there now.

Why do people say this isn't sailing? Isn't this the goal in peoples minds that sail everyday to get to a far place quicker or a wish that they could! I think its awesome for the winds no motor to take you this fast across a body of water to a far place only everyone dreams of doing in a day !

Kite surfing is not sailing, IMHO.

Kite surfing is no more "sailing" than skateboarding is surfing.
