Who Will Claim the Title of World’s Fastest Sailboat?

A little over a decade ago the race to create the fastest sailboat, or fastest sail-powered watercraft was on. Ultimately it was Vestas Sailrocket 2 that claimed a new speed sailing record with such a significant jump that the competition cooled for some years.

Now, a French team and a Swiss team are both hoping to set a new record and in so doing become the fastest sailboat known to man.
