International Burgee Registry
Sailing Performance Records date back to the days when the clipper ships used to sail around the Cape on their route to San Francisco. Today sailing records are getting broken at an amazing fast pace. There have been an average of 15 to 20 record attempts in each of the last five years. The World Sailing Speed Record Council is authorized by the ISAF to certify these records.
