OK, ok.... we know Raceboards are quick ... scarily quick sometimes ... perhaps it's time to find out just how quick......borrowed a GPS, went down the beach in not very much wind and got 17.7 knots......went back the next day in about the same wind, but on flat water and got 21.4 knots (graph on the right shows the average wind speed on the first day - not the board speed)

Now it's over to you lot: buy, beg, borrow or steal a GPS, go out there and show us what your Raceboard can do. Mail you're best speeds to
