On Nov. 16, the Vestas Sailrocket team reached speeds of 59.23 knots (about 70 mph) over a 500m course at Walvis Bay in Namibia, breaking the outright world speed sailing record. Sailrocket’s peak speed during the record-breaking run was 62.53 knots in winds of 25 knots. The outright world speed sailing record is set by taking the average speed of a craft between two points set 500m apart. The previous record stood at 55.65 knots (about 64 mph).
SP-High Modulus, the marine business of Gurit, has been involved with the Sailrocket project from the very early stages and supplied materials including Ampreg 22, prepregs from its SE 84LV and SE 70 product ranges, and some dry reinforcements, along with technical services to the project.
“Everyone at SP-High Modulus is delighted that Sailrocket team has achieved its goal of breaking the world speed sailing record,’ said Paul Goddard, general manager-marine at SP-High Modulus. “The team has put in a lot of work to make this happen and we congratulate them on their achievement.”

Sunreef Yachts has unveiled the Sunreef 90 Ultimate, a light carbon, high-performance oriented superyacht. Her hulls with reversed bow allow for 20+ knots of speed on sails.

For the first time, the flybridge will be strictly dedicated to sails maneuvering and entirely covered by solar panels, which allows for transparent ceilings in the salon and master cabin.
The entire superstructure will be made of carbon fiber and glass panels.
The 20-square-meter cockpit features a sofa, sun pads and a tender garage on the aft.
Annapolis-based Beneteau will unveil its new Oceanis 55 at Strictly Sail Miami in February. The yacht made its world premiere at the Paris Boat Show in December.
“A number of our dealers from the U.S. and Canada travelled to Paris specifically to preview every detail of Beneteau’s newest yacht before its introduction to the North American market, and we’ve already secured our first two retail orders,” said Denise Hanna, director of sales for Beneteau America.
The Oceanis 55, designed by Berret Racoupeau Yacht Design, features a mast set back to enhance balance and performance under sail. The chine extends the full length of the boat to increase speed while reducing the initial angle of heel. Large windows allow natural light to illuminate the interior living spaces. The Oceanis 55 is designed to accommodate families of all sizes and is available in three-, four- or five-cabin layouts.
