BJORN DUNKERBECK & ROBBY NAISH’S

SPEED SAILING RECORD ATTEMPT

On July 4th the undisputed icons and world champions of windsurfing

Björn Dunkerbeck & Robby Naish are about to embark on breaking a new

frontier

in sailing when they set out to become the fastest men on water.

As long as the sailing sport has been in existence, the quest to break the

wind speed barriers remained an elusive dream for many. Both Dunkerbeck &

Naish together with a selected group of the sailing worlds finest will gather

at three locations around the globe, waiting for just the right conditions,

to not only challenge the world record of 46.52knots but to break the 50 knots

barrier.

The Challengers will embark on their quest for 28 days in the Canary Islands

and eventually travel to Southern France’s Mediterranean Sea before catching

the winds of spring on the shores of New Zealand’s Pacific coastline. They

will leave nothing to chance, in their search for just the right wind and favorable

water conditions.
