"The wind blew up to 45 knots today and the organisers decided to built a retaining wall after the finish of the run to keep the water in at low tide.
This paid huge dividends today and many records were smashed !


Fabrice the time keeper has checked these speeds, but not the WSSRC yet. He asked that we state :
Demands of speed records under sail, are subject to the official ratification by ISAF/WSSRC."
