UK Speedsailing - windsurfing as fast as you dare ...

This site is dedicated to the elite UK windsurfers risking it all to push to speeds to up to the magic 50 knot barrier. The site is managed and owned by me - Tristan Haskins - still looking to break 44 knots ! I've just upgraded the website so please bear with me while I tidy it up .... Sail Fast - Sail Safe
