In only 25 knot average winds and after reaching 39.14 knots on his very first run down the multiple-record Record #sailingrecord breaking channel, Chris on his second run then took his brand new world record Record #sailingrecord to yet another level with 42.94 knots (80 kph!) (average speed Speed #speedsailing ) over the official 500metres.
His passion for the sport has motivated him to gain the skills, strength, physical and mental conditioning to achieve speeds that many non-disabled kite surfers only dream of. Good winds are forecast for the next few days and if Chris continues with his existing performances, he could very well be the fastest performer yet.
