Pour commencer, une petite vidéo de Sylvain Hoceini à plus de 52 noeuds, puis les commentaires à chaud de Sophie, après cette mémorable journée de records à Luderitz :

28 Oct 2010 : EPIC THURSDAY – Records a plenty !

Seb is the new record holder of France and Europe with 55.49, he held the outright for 1 hour before Rob Douglas did 55.65.
Fabrice the time keeper has checked these speeds, but not the WSSRC yet.
Demands of speed records under sail, are subject to the official ratification by ISAF/WSSRC.

Alex is 3rd with 54.93

Charlotte Consorti did 48.5 on the display, followed 30 minutes later by Sophie with the same speed.
Charlotte went back out later and did 50.43. The first lady over 50 !!!
Sophie’s speed was 48.64; she could only do 3 runs has her hand was in agony as it’s broken.

So our speeds are: she: 50,43 and me: 48,64

Please see below a kind of article: BE CAREFULL, NOT RATIFIED BY WSSRC

The wind was 45 kts max, organization decides to close the run to keep the water as a reservoir because of the low tide. Very clever, records were smashed!
