Speed sailing is one of the most exciting disciplines in windsurfing.
There are not many places in the world where windsurfers can drive their gear at around 100 kilometers per hour (54 knots). Luderitz, in Namibia, is one of those places.
The most popular speed windsurfing division invites athletes to achieve the highest average speed over 500 meters. The current world record holder is Antoine Albeau, with 53.27 knots.
