Advanced Sailing Boat Breaks Speed Record In San Francisco Bay

Hydroptère, the worlds fastest sailing boat, sailed one nautical mile at a speed of 37.5 Knots (43 mph or 70 km/h) in San Francisco Bay.
The Hydroptère is an experimental sailing hydrofoil designed by French yachtsman Alain Thébault. Her multihull hydrofoil design allows the sail-powered vessel to reach high speeds on water. In November 2009, she broke the 50 knot barrier for a nautical mile with a speed of 50.17 knots (92.91 km/h or 57.73 mph) in Hyères (France), setting a new world record
