Sailrocket record beaten...


Recommended Posts

I don't know why, but I found this... fishy.

The whole video looks more like a prank than a real run, with data recording, etc... The mocking of Antoine Albeau at the end of the video was not showing very good taste either. And WTF with Paris-Saint-Germain at the end??  (or did I misunderstand???)

Or maybe a promotion video to get more sponsorship?

 

I hope I am wrong.

How the heck would THAT be faster than sailrocket?   

I just don't see it, -  and we surely don't see anything like it in the video.  They aren't even close to FrenchTrench speeds. 

Not.  Even.  Close.

Call me a skeptic,  but I'm skeptical.

Yes, the footage of board construction with dudes wearing full gear was funny. But having sailed a tandem (two sail) board I'll give them chops for sailing that triple rig at any speed.

No way they went nearly as fast as they are claiming. 

Each guy has a huge parasitic drag profile. There would also be quite a bit of turbulence hitting the back two rigs. 
Not as efficient as a single rig, fast iceboats got rid of jibs years ago  

Good on them for building and sailing that rig, it’s a neat project.

The guys sailing and Horue are from south of France, where supporting historic PSG rival Marseille's soccer team is a religion which involves shitting on PSG as often as possible.

Hell I'm not even from south of France and I shit on PSG on any given occasion
