With ISAF predictably and  lamely passing over Paul Larsen and the Vestas Sailrocket team for the World Sailor award, Larso and his video team finally felt it safe to drop the profanity-laced ‘reality reel’ of Paul’s astonishing 65-knot record run on us today.  It’s a year to the day since they broke the record, and what many don’t realize is that Larso and his team moved the sport’s ‘absolute top speed’ further in one month that it had moved between 1991 and 2012.  Let’s repeat that, because it is worth it: The Sailrocket raised the bar from 55 knots to 65 knots in one year.  It took from 1991 to 2010 to get to 55 knots from 45.

Simply amazing, and kudos to the team for releasing this re-edited, very emotional, and very real highlight reel.  For best effect, click on HD and run it on the biggest screen you have.  Got a question for Paul or the Sailrocket team?  Congratulate him again in the thread and he’ll probably answer whatever you got.

This thing would look incredible if it wasn’t just a prettier version of the Vestas Sailrocket.  The derivative-looking concept drawing is actually Alain Thebault’s idea of a 100-knot boat, and if there’s anyone obsessive enough to spend the years it could take to refine Paul Larsen’s and the SR team’s design to a 100-knot craft, it’s Thebault.  We wish he’d stick to developing his RTW mega-foiler, but sometimes following is a lot easier than leading. Here’s the presser.
