See this new video of speed record contender SailRocket getting out of control
Another spectacular crash and burn from Paul Larsen, as the psycho speed sailing yacht tries to send him up the beach in Namibia again. He reports:
‘On Day 12 and Run 7 with 18 knots of true wind blowing across Walvis Bay’s incredible speed sailing strip in Namibia, Paul Larsen lost steerage at 35 knots.
His craft spun in towards the beach. The round-up was aggressive and caused the solid wing sail to backwind violently and slam down into the cross beam. Sailrocket stopped abruptly. The beam was shattered.’
