  7. Great stuff. UK teams have land and sea sailing records. How about a land craft along the the Vestas Sail Rocket design with the sail down to lee of the craft?

  11. Amazing accomplishment!

    From a design perspective, why not put the outrigger on the down-wind side of the craft to counter-act the heeling moment from the wing? Would doing so introduce steering or stability issues at speed?

  18. Richard Jenkins,
                             How exactly is the craft steered. Does the wing do all the steering or does the front wheel have any capability for steering input?

  25. I am sorry, but reading the comment by +Wombat Weather …. how does 75mph on water eclipse 126.1mph on land?

  27. It looks like the outrigger wheel was on the windward side. It seems that it should be on the downwind side to prevent it from turning over. Meaning it could only travel at speed safely going in one direction.

  28. Great achievement; but Paul Larsens Sailrocket 2 has far eclipsed this record (over 75mph on water).
