Thomas Lombardo, our Gin rocketSpeed world record!
A few days ago, Thomas Lombardo achieved a new world speed record in 500m distance with his Gin Spirit, what a rocket!
Riding a 8m Gin Kiteboarding Spirit in 25 knots, he hit an average speed of 35,81 knots. Similarly, he broke the world record in nautical environment (1852m), with an average speed of 34,72 knots with a 10m Flymaax Boom v2 in 18-23 knots.
His world record was validated by the World Sailing Speed Record Council, making him the official record holder in those 2 categories. Way to go Thomas!
