Speed record?

So far, I have managed top speed of 7.3 knots with myself (75kg) and my child (12kg) on the boat in 4.5 m/s wind speed. But I am very sure that it is possible to achieve higher speeds with more wind and less weight.

What is your speed record?

Your record for D13 is very good.
My record, only on D17, during the rally (with full load) - 17 knots.

Today I broke my record with 7.6 knots with 8 m/s wind and only myself as load (75kg) 8) With more wind and maybe close-hauled (making the front of potons kept out of water) I think I can beat this record :) But now it seems I have to wait another week until the wind gets >8m/s.
