Not only did F-One rider Alex Caizergues broke the outright all category speed record yesterday in Luderitz at 15:38 with a run at 54.10kts , but he also smashed the 100km/h barrier, which is truly an amazing achievment.
This is an historical moment in the sailing world. Alex left his closest competitor almost 2kts behind. Unbelievable. New record is now 54.10kts. Congratulations Alex! and this was the first official day of the competition… This is the 4th time Alex is breaking a world record.
Congrats to Alex and to all his sponsors. . Record was broken on a new 2011 Bandit IV 8m, using a Kakoo custom board and asymmetrical “RESPONSE” thin fins based on the new UNIBOX system that will equipped all the F-One 2011 twin tips.
