The fastest boat in the world?!

It's about as non-traditional as you can imagine, but the Vestas Sailrocket is a fascinating vessel.

This week, it's racing at the Luderitz Speed Challenge in Walvis Bay, Namibia.

The always-fun Kimball Livingston picks up the story from here: Sixty-one Knots (!). Check out the videos!

And it's not just the Sailrocket that's having a great week: Surfer Today reports that the windsurfers are flying along, too: Anders Bringdal breaks the 50 knots speed windsurfing frontier.
