World sailboat record nearly 60 knots 

Well, this bit of news and accompanying video, hardly needs any words. The VESTAS Sailrocket 2 has blown the previous Outright world sailboat record out of the water. Paul Larsen averaged 59.23 knots (68 mph) over the 500 meter course in Africa's Walvis Bay, peaking at over 63 knots.


All beautifully captured on a GoPro 2.
