A wind propelled rocket!

By Guido Trombetta on 12:37 PM , ,


Sailrocket is the name of a challenger, to be more precise is an Outright World Speed Sailing Record Contender. That means that behind the name Sailrocket there is a bunch of guys that are trying to obtain the world speed record for a sailing boat.. and what a boat! Their Sailrocket is the most bizarre sail-"thing" I've ever seen in my life but it goes fast.. superfast! Don't you believe it? Check this video below where they reach nothing more than 42,4 knots in Walvis Bay, Namibia.



And you know what? This is not enough, they have already seen the road to break the next barrier, the wall of the 50 knots! Just a little tweaking on the Sailrocket, a bit of luck and of course.. courage.
So why don't you check their official site where you could find everything about their amazing challenge.
