      WOW!!!!! That is awesome!!!! I believe the world wind-powered record is
      50 point something knots set by the "Yellow Pages" purpose-built
      tri-maran a couple of years ago at Sandy Bay, Victoria. The "yacht" was
      designed to only travel in one direction so presumably it is unnecessary
      to run in both directions as is the case with land speed records. 50
      knots is about 92 km/hr........!!
      Go for it Ben ......you can give kite-surfing the recognition it
      deserves!

      For anyone interested there is a wind conversion chart on my home page
      at:

      http://www.iinet.net.au/~htlk/page29.html

      that converts mph, km/hr, knots, mtrs/sec

      Maybe Dave Culp can help us here????

      cheers

          Une journee sans vent est toujours
          meilleure a prendre qu'un repas
          avec un mauvais vin.

          A day without wind is always better
          than a meal with bad wine
