Subject: Macquarie Innovation makes history
This is just a very
brief note with more details to come - but essentially, we did it !Macquarie Innovation powered down the Sandy Point speed course last night at an average speed of 50.43 knots. During that run, we hit a peak speed of over 100 km/hr and while the claimed average speed, which is about to be sent for ratification, will be reduced to 50.08 kts due to the tidal allowance, we have sailed our craft in excess of 50 knots.It is the culmination of over 15 years of work by the team and their loyal group of supporters and once again, we wanted to pass on both our sincere thanks and congratulations to you for helping us to create a little piece of yachting history last night. As a result, we will be making a claim for a new class C record which will be just shy of the current outright world record (50.57 kts) held by a kite, but most importantly sets us apart as the only sailing boat in the world to complete a 50 knot run !Once again, congratulations and many thanks for your help in getting us to our goal of 50 knots !
For the record I voted for Select Fins other model (Select S07 M)
And when pushing the board to the max in higher chop I just feel that the Fanatic falcon feels way lighter when hitting a wave with the nose of the board. The CA speedboard just doesn't like to hit a big wave when sailing 100% flat, it is a big bang, or when you are a bit unstable it could result in a catapult. I guess the age has also a bit influence on the fanatic falcon 91 'softness'. I like it!
Differences between the 2 designs are very big, but I still feel the speedpotential of both designs is very about the same.
From March 1st onward people can start kitesurfing and windsurfing for our new 1x10 record ranking. There are some minor technical problems left before we're able to start up the record ranking and the GPS Speed Record Technical Committee is finalizing technical aspects related to the latest firmware version presented by Tom Chalko. This might take a few days. In the meanwhile our members can start the new record hunt.
If you consider to enter the record ranking make sure to use two GT-31 devices and download the latest firmware which can be obtained at:
In case a rider expects possible high speed conditions before the final rules are presented please contact Roger van Tongeren (windsurf) or Rob Munro (kitesurf) with a short description of your record plans.
