So Paul Larsen has launched his new version of Vestas SailRocket today in Cowes IOW. What a beast!

Essentially this is a boat(actually half boat, half plane – see the video below) designed to break the current 500m sailing speed record, which is set at 55.65 Knots on a Kite Board (video below).

From the video on DailySail Paul is suggesting that this boat will do over 60 knots, which would be awesome. Just hope that they have it finished soon and can get it out, do some testing and start breaking some records.
