World Speed Sailing Record Council

Whilst, the WSSRC was not able to ratify the original claim (of 697 nm) by Maiden II as the last position report was 2 minutes over the 24 hours, with subsequent information the claim was ratified.
Whilst, the WSSRC was not able to ratify the original claim (of 697 nm) by Maiden II as the last position report was 2 minutes over the 24 hours, with subsequent information the claim was ratified.

However the WSSRC requires that additional position reports are made prior to, and following the record claim and, from these our Council members were able to identify a 24 hour pairing which has resulted in the existing record PlayStation 687.17 nm) being broken.

The WSSRC therefore are very pleased to announce the following:

Longest Distance Sailed In 24 Hours - Outright World Record

Yacht: Maiden 11
Owned by: Tracy Edwards
Sailed by: Brian Thompson, Helena Darvelid, Adrienne Cahalan and a crew of 10
Dates: 12-13 June 2002

The original claim was a distance of 697nm, and with the recalculation this has decreased to a distance of 694.78nm.
