New Speed Record to Cabrinha Crossbow achieved by Rob Douglas of 49.84 knots


Luderitz Speed 2008 - Rob Douglas world record 49.84kt 


New World Speed Record to Cabrinha Crossbow IDS: Rob Douglas, from Martha's Vineyard (USA) proved the world on October 6th 2008 in Luderitz, Namibia, that the Cabrinha Crossbow IDS is the fastess sailing craft that exists. Rob is one of the most professionally equipped and methodical kitesurfing athletes we've seen in a long time so his incredible rise to the top of the speed chain did not come by accident. He is joined in Luderitz by Olympic silver medalist Mike Gebhart who has acted as coach, trainer and equipment assistant during the campaign. At 5'11 inches and yielding a solid 225 lbs of muscle, Rob is the perfect candidate for speed sailing. And it was proven.

 

The world speed record was previously held by Antoine Albeau on a Neil Pryde windsurfing rig, but the WSSR Council has announced the ratification of a new world record for the Outright Sailing Speed Record by a Kitesurfer.
