Here are some highs and lows from our last four month session in Walvis Bay, Namibia. We are steadily progressing up the speed sailing ladder to our goal of becoming the fastest sailing craft in the world. As the video shows, there are a few 'snakes' along the way.
Overall progress is good. We are ticking many boxes in the development of this radical Mk1 prototype as we work to bring its potential to the surface. We are now sailing with confidence in the boats ideal wind range (22 knots) and constantly hitting speeds well over 40 knots. We know more than anyone how far we still have to go to get to 50... but we also believe that we are on the right road...and in the right car!
If you have any queries or want to follow the day to day action of the project then follow the blog-spot on www.vestassailrocket.com . We are returning to Namibia and hope to carry on sailing from mid-late August 08.
Cheers, Paul.
