This group of students is on a mission to make the world’s fastest sailboat. They aim to claim the world speed sailing record.
“SP80 is a team composed of EPFL (École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne) students and alumni that passionately believe that through the combination of sailing, kitesurfing and engineering principles, they can significantly outperform the standing sailing speed record. Gathering members with strong experiences in high-speed sailing and engineering, the team has been working since then on the design of a pioneer kite-boat to take up this challenge.”
