The World Sailing Speed Record Council (WSSRC) has received information of new claims on both the Outright World Sailing Speed Record and the Women's Outright Record.

The claims, subject to WSSR Ratification are:

48.70 knots set on Sunday 10 April at Saintes Maries de la Mer, France by Finian MAYNARD (IVB).

41.25 knots also set on on Sunday 10 April at Saintes Maries de la Mer by Karine JAGGI (SUI).

The current Outright Record is already held by Finian MAYNARD and stands at 46.82 knots set in Saintes Maries in November 2004. Before MAYNARD broke the record last year it had been held for over ten years at a speed of 46.52 knots set by Simon McKEON (AUS). Babethe COQUELLE holds the Outright Women's Record with a speed set over ten years ago in July 1993 in Tarifa of 40.05 knots.
