Hans Kriesel has just smashed the 100 km/h barrier during a 2 second average whilst out speedsailing earlier today. With a spike of over 54 knots, Hans is clearly over the moon about his achievement - "Finally did it 100km/h!!! Super stoked, had a camera crew on location from the Dutch National television. Also used a GoPro, can't wait to see the footage. Very difficult conditions today but I managed!"

We'll bring you more as soon as we get it.
