Somehow, in late March, a vehicle called “Greenbird,” driven by a British man, Richard Jenkins, claimed the world land sailing speed record on a dry lake, Lake Ivanpah (or Ivanpah Lake) in California near the Nevada border, without most of the rest of us hearing about it until now! With only wind power, Greenbird reached 202 km/hour (126 miles/hour)!

Greenbird is a carbon fiber composite craft. The first link above has fantastic photos.

The full article is here.

Richard Jenkins now plans to return to work on his Greenbird ice sailing craft, which he plans to use to better his speed, on ice this December, on Canyon Ferry Lake in Montana!

Check out the Greenbird Web pages! Go Brits!
