Land
Speed Record Attempt


Thought
you might like to see the latest attempt at the land speed record for
a sailing Catamaran. It looks like The Fusion
40
now holds the new record at 100 kph. This is one of their boats
being delivered from Mackay to Proserpine (Queensland, Australia) about
130 km in all. The boat is called Eylandtime as is being built
as a La Passion kit by it’s owner who has just had it moved up to
Proserpine from Mackay so the owner can finish it off himself, with the
help of some local shipwrights. Fusion has an interesting concept where
they ship their kits around the world in two containers with pre-made
components that you assemble. The boats are done to the shell
stage
you see here in about 14 days!
