World speed sailing challenge
The World Sailing Speed Record has now stood for nearly thirteen years and is all about beating the fastest time ever measured in the history of this sport. The current record took place 13 years ago, when an Australian vessel set the mark at 46.52 knots (86.16km/h) in open water and natural settings. Although many millions of dollars have been spent since and countless new technological developments have been applied, no one has been able to go faster than that.Under the jurisdiction of the International Sailing Federation and the watchful eye of a Commissioner of the World Sailing Speed Record Council, challengers still try their luck and sail over a 500-meter distance, during which the average speed is determined.Four giants in sailing – Antoine Albeau, Anders Bringdal, Björn Dunkerbeck and Robby Naish – have decided to challenge the fastest speed sail boat to date and meet at different places around the globe to complete their mission.Their first mission will be to shatter the current record of 46.52 knots (86.16km/h or 53.53mph). Their second mission and the perhaps most coveted price of any sailor will be to break the 50-knot barrier. Some consider it impossible – but the challengers see it definitely within their reach!
