WSSRC ratifies first ever sailor over 55 knots

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

The WSSR Council announces the ratification of a new World Record:

Record : World Sailing Speed Record

Venue: Luderitz. Namibia

Name: Sebastien Cattalan. FRA

Equipment: Kitesurf. Xcelerator Custom. Genetrix  9 sqm

Dates: 28th October 2010.

Course length: 501M

Current: Nil

Start time: 13;56;22;01

Finish time: 13;56;39;56

Elapsed time: 17.55 seconds

Speed: 55.49 knots

Comments: Previous record: Alex Caizergues FRA. 54.10 kts, 12th October 2010, Luderitz

Sebastien is the first ever sailor to exceed 55 knots.

As there were a number of subsequent claims on the World Record during the month-long Luderitz speed event, the Council will announce them in chronological order as they are ratified. This will give due recognition to each holder, even though it may have only been for a limited period.
