We thought their previous records where impressive, well Vestas SailRocket team have really blown the lid off it with their record this time.

Last week we posted a story on Vestas SailRocket breaking the World Speed Sailing record at 59.38knot average over 500m. Well, they have smashed their own record again, blitzing the 500m with a whopping 65.45 knot average speed, and peaking at mind blowing 68 knots.

So far there is no footage available of the record run, but we’ll post something as soon as it pops up.
