The intrepid hommes in the Saints Maries trench in the Camargue region of Southern France who are attempting to break the 50 knot barrier with their Masters of Speed project yesterday knocked up another fast run.

Antione Albeau was the fastest on the track as the forescast delivered with up to 45 knots coming in from the South. The Frenchman set a new French record (beating his previous best) over the holy grail 500m course of 47.69 knots. This is the third fastest speed ever registered behind Finian Maynard (48.70 knots) and the kite surfer Alexander Caizegues (47.97 knots).

Finian Maynard also had a productive day with a speed of 46.55 knots while Valérie Ghibaudo was not far of his personal record. Friday, the covers go back on as the team once again wait for the perfect conditions.
