Sailrocket 2 on display at Birmingham NEC

13 October, 2015

Sailrocket 2, which smashed the world speed sailing record by the biggest margins in its history, will go on display at this year's Advanced Engineering Show in Birmingham on the 4th and 5th of November.

Sailrocket 2 will be accompanied by the team that sailed her at over 65 knots (75+ MPH) down the record course in Walvis Bay, Namibia, as well as principal designers of Aerotrope.

This will be the first time that Sailrocket 2 has gone on full public display since she broke the record three years ago. She will be set up exactly as she was the day she set the current record.
