The speed record of this French boat is 47.2 knots (=87 km/h). Without engines! Only wind force!!! I change the background music with Juno Reactor VS. Don Davis - Navras.
Sports Science shows Jason Zuback breaking the world's ball speed record at 204mph.
Watch SpongeBob and Patrick as they drive through Gooferland in the patty wagon on this fun video game. So, will Jon beat his own underwater speed record? :-)
Kitesurfing flying using a power kite and surfboard is a new sport. The video shows good close-up views of flying and jumping. Kitesurfing to surfers can make the Midwest seem like the California coast.
Kitesurfers use power kites attached to a harness to glide through the water and leap, jump, and fly above it. The current speed record is 77 kilometers per hour.
Note the kitesurfers as they fly, jump, turn, surf upwind, and crash. Note also the many kinds of kites.

X-43A Raises the Bar to Mach 9.6
Guinness World Records recognized NASA's X-43A scramjet with a new world speed record for a jet-powered aircraft - Mach 9.6, or nearly 7,000 mph. The X-43A set the new mark and broke its own world record on its third and final flight on Nov. 16, 2004.
In March 2004, the X-43A set the previous record of Mach 6.8 (nearly 5,000 mph). The fastest air-breathing, manned vehicle, the U.S. Air Force SR-71, achieved slightly more than Mach 3.2. The X-43A more than doubled, then tripled, the top speed of the jet-powered SR-71.
The X-43 is an unmanned experimental hypersonic aircraft design with multiple planned scale variations meant to test different aspects of hypersonic flight. It is part of NASA's Hyper-X program.
A winged booster rocket with the X-43 itself at the tip, called a "stack", is launched from a carrier plane. After the booster rocket (a modified first stage of the Pegasus rocket) brings the stack to the target speed and altitude, it is discarded, and the X-43 flies free using its own engine, a scramjet.
This accurate and delightful recreation of the Thompson Trophy racer flew gracefully at Akron, Colorado in 2008. There were 5 Mystery Ships built between 1928 and 1931. They had a top speed of 235 mph, which was faster than the miliary pursuit aircraft at the time. Hundreds of speed records fell to this little racer; piloted by Doolittle, Pancho Barnes and Frank Hawks.
A Short Video of the Thrust SSC. Thrust SSC broke the sound barrier back in October 15, 1997. It achieved a speed of 1,228 km/h (763 mph) and the SSC became the first land vehicle to officially break the sound barrier. Thrust SSC also has the the manned land speed record under its belt and has not been beaten to this day.
The twin engines developed a thrust of 223 kN (50,000 lbf) and burned around 4 Imperial gallons per second (18.2 l/s or 4.8 US gallons/s).
The Lockheed SR-71 was an advanced, long-range, Mach 3.36 strategic reconnaissance aircraft. The SR-71 was the fastest and highest flying production aircraft in the world.
The first flight of an SR-71 took place on December 22, 1964, at Air Force Plant 42 in Palmdale, California. The first SR-71 to enter service was delivered to the 4200th (later, 9th) Strategic Reconnaissance Wing at Beale Air Force Base, California, in January 1966.
From the beginning of the Blackbird's reconnaissance missions over enemy territory (North Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos) in 1968, the SR-71s averaged approximately one sortie a week for nearly two years. By 1970, the SR-71s were averaging two sorties per week, and by 1972, they were flying nearly one sortie every day.
On July 28, 1976, an SR-71 broke the world record for its class: an absolute speed record of 1905.81 knots (2,193.17 mph, 3,529.56 km/h), and an "absolute altitude record" of 85,069 feet (25,929 m).
The SR-71 also holds the record for flying from New York to London in 1 hour 54 minutes and 56.4 seconds, set on September 1, 1974.
The decision to build the Blackbird's structure using 85% titanium and 15% composite materials was a first in the aircraft industry. The advances made by Lockheed in learning to deal with this material have been used in subsequent high-speed aircraft such as most modern fighters.
The Pratt & Whitney J58-P4 engines used in the Blackbird were the only military engines ever designed to operate continuously on afterburner, and actually became more efficient as the aircraft went faster. Each J58 engine could produce 32,500 lb (145 kN) of static thrust.
The Blackbird was one of the most magnificent military jets ever developed. The aircraft has played an important
military role in international conflicts for over twenty-five years.
The United States Air Force Strategic Air Command had SR-71 Blackbirds in service from 1966 through 1991.

Vincent Owners Club
Information about the Vincent Black Lightning on Wiki****
The Vincent Black Lightning was a British motorcycle designed and built in September 1948 at the Vincent works in Great North Road, Stevenage, Hertfordshire UK between 1948 and 1952. At the time the Black Lightning was the fastest production motorcycle in the world.
Vincent Motorcycles began motorcycle production in 1928 and were well established after World War II when they launched the 1000 cc Black Lightning. This was a production version of the Black Lightning which held the world land speed record, with a similar engine specification.
Available to order, a 'standard' Black Lightning was supplied in racing trim with magnesium alloy components, special racing tires on alloy rims, 'rear-set' foot controls, a solo seat and aluminum fenders. This reduced the Lightning's weight to 380 lb (170 kg). The 998 cc twin cylinder, OHV, air cooled, pushrod V-twin engine specifications were always based on standard parts but upgraded with higher performance racing equipment. The Black Lightning had racing, higher strength connecting rods, larger inlet ports, polished rocker gear, steel idler gears, racing carburettors, a manual-advance magneto and was available with compression ratios between 6.8:1 and 12.5:1. This resulted in 70 bhp (52 kW) and a top speed of 150 mph (240 km/h). Only 31 Black Lightnings were ever built before production ended due to Vincent's financial problems in 1952.
On 13 September 1948, Rollie Free achieved the US national motorcycle speed record at Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah riding the first Vincent Black Lightning. During test runs Free reached average speeds of 148.6 mph (239.1 km/h). To reduce drag, Free stripped to his swimming shorts for the final run, which he made lying flat with his legs stretched out and his head low, guiding the Vincent by following a black stripe painted on the salt bed. The stunt worked as Free covered the mile in 23.9 seconds, passing the 150 mph (240 km/h) barrier and on the return run he reached a record average speed of 150.313 mph (241.905 km/h). This led to one of the famous photographs in motorcycle history, known as the "bathing suit bike". The AMA certified Free's record. Innovative features of the bike included the first-ever Vincent rear shock absorber, the first Mk II racing cams and horizontally mounted racing carburettors. In 1950, Rollie Free returned to the Bonneville Salt Flats and broke his own record, averaging speeds of 156.58 mph (251.99 km/h) on the Vincent despite a high-speed crash during those speed trials.
In the book (and film) "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" by Hunter S. Thompson, Hunter expresses his fondness for the 1952 Vincent Black Lightning as the finest motorcycle ever built.

Also mentioned in the interview were record holders Russel Wright and Robert "Bob" Burns.
Russell Wright set a 1954 New Zealand speed record of 140 mph (230 km/h) on a Black Lightning at the Tram Road Speed Trials.
Bob Burns was known for building a streamliner body for a sidecar bike in an attempt to make a world record speed run.
The two formed a partnership. Bob Burns would built the stream liner bodies for Wright's motorcycle and Burns could used the Vincent Black Lightning with a sidecar to set the speed record.
December 1954 Bob Burns went first and set a sidecar record of 157 mph 253 km/h. July 1955, Russell Wright set a world speed record of 185 mph 298 km/h on the Tram Road near Christchurch. Bob Burns upped his sidecar record to 163.06 mph.
The Heart Of America Motorcycle Enthusiasts Vintage Classic Antique Motorcycle Show was held at the Kansas City Airline History Museum *******www.airlinehistorymuseum**** at the Kansas City Downtown Airport. Inside the huge hangar were two classic vintage antique passenger airplanes planes: a Douglas DC-3 and a Martin 404. Right outside the hangar was a 1958 Super Constellation, or Super Connie.
Hopefully Gene will stop in KC and we can put this super nice ride On the Lift.
Western Australian Martin Stamatis became the fastest Australian drag racer at the recent Sydney Summernationals on Saturday February 16 when he blasted his Fastlane Software Jim Read Racing top fuel dragster to a top speed of 329.10 mph (529.63 kmh) down the WSID quarter mile.
The fastest speed recorded by an Australian on Aussie soil was previously held by his team mate, Phil Read who ran 329.02 mph (529.51 kmh) at the 2006 Boxing Day International Top Fuel Challenge.
Although the margin may be minimal to some, for Stamatis the speed was a great personal achievement for him and his hard working team, and the 4.577 second ET from the run is also now only just behind Phil Read's personal best of time 4.571 seconds, leaving the entire Read team really pumped.
Stamatis and his team then went on to win the meeting, and are now looking forward to the next top fuel round due to be held in Sydney on May 2 and 3.

My two weather stations, WH-1081 and a Maplin branded gadget on a windy day. The maximum wind speed recorded today was 73.4 km/h and tossed garden furniture around (out of shot of this video), ripped the garden shed roof clean off, snapped off someones carpark bay gate, (which he fixed earlier on in the day) and snapped a massive branch of a tree off, about the size of a car!

Thompson's life in the fast lane provides ample material for the filmmakers. From the drag strips, to desert racing to land speed record challenges, to car building, designing and race promotion Thompson earned his place as a certified automotive icon.
He started calling himself the Fastest American on Wheels in 1958 after setting a record of 194 miles per hour. His goal was to break the world record of 394.2 miles per hour set in 1947. He began to build a world land speed record car -- the Challenger 1.
Thompson took his new car out to the Bonneville Salt Flats on October 6, 1959 and piloted it to a World Speed Record of 363.48 miles per hour. He also set a world speed record in A/BFS Class that remained unbeaten until1990 when Al Teague broke it at 389.372 miles per hour in his streamliner.
In 1960, Thompson returned to the Bonneville Salt Flats with a modified Challenger 1 for another record attempt. Its four 410 cubic-inch engines secured his title when he set a new American record at 330.51 miles per hour. He bested the world speed with a run at 407 miles per hour (which was faster than any man had drive a car before) but crashed before he could make a second run and thus secure the official record.
The Challenger 1 had its last record run two year later on July 24, 1962. The poor conditions of the salt flats halted the first attempt because he couldnt get any traction as the car bounced on the salt bed. He found a smoother part of the Flats for another run and turned in a speed of 357 mph. But he announced that the Challengers days on the Salt Flats were over.
