World Sailing Speed Record Council

Performance Certificates officially recognise the time of a passage over either recognised or non-recognised routes, but which do not necessarily break an existing world record in one of the recognised WSSR categories.
The conditions for the award of a Performance Certificate are as rigorous as those for a World Record.

When a new route without any "benchmark" time is recognised as a world record course, the yacht posting the initial speed will be awarded a Performance Certificate. Performance Certificates may also be awarded for an outstanding achievement, (but which does not break an existing WSSR World Record), over the 500 metre distance.
