75 mph under sail...a new record!

I thought it was going to be an ice sailboat. Those things are crazy fast.

I think the definition in play here is probably on liquid water.  The sailrocket would probably go even faster on ice.

Definitely an amazing machine.

The windsurfing pictures are pretty wild too.  Take a look at image 84 for a view that shows the narrow ditch the windsurfing records are set on -- only room for straightlining.
