Geovany Martins Downwind Record Attempt

Postby Toby » Thu Aug 05, 2021 3:40 pm

Crossing made on October 19, 2020 Lagoinha - CE to Pedra do sal - PI (Distance of 360km) This was the first time I tried to set a #record with the longest crossing in the shortest time. Due to Guinness Book rules, it was not recognized. In 2021 we will try again. Leaving from Barra do Ceará to Barra Grande in Piauí, about 420km away.

Geovany Martins will start an attempt for a record downwinder within the next weeks.

I tries to have live coverage with a camera onboard.

Stay tuned for update:

I wonder if the record is easier to set on a hidrofoil? It does look like fun on a tweentip and so close to the beach...
