New kitesurf world record nautical mile
With the wind full on at the Prince of Speed event in Plage du Rouet, La Palme (France) on the 10th June, Marine Tlattla successfully averaged a speed of 35.41 Knots on the Edge V9 6m and beat the previous speed record. Not only is she now the fastest woman on a kite over the nautical mile, but she is also the fastest woman overall in France across all categories; boat, kite and windsurf. On top of that, Marine Tlattla also scored a non-official record for the “outright 500m open ocean woman” with an average speed of 40,47 knots. All the official records are subject to be ratified by World Sailing Speed Record Council (WSSRC).
“Starting off with a big thank you to Principe Baldini and Vanessa Batlle for the enormous effort they put in and the pleasure they give us by organizing this annual event, I had so much fun on the water but also on land meeting everyone!!! Thanks to Julien Kerneur of Ozone Kites for the Edge kites that I love, to Christian from Cocktail Tonic Uzes for his partnership and his great place, thank you to my favorite caddy who was just as much KO as I was in the evening :)) to all those who supported me; family, friends. Thank you to my 2 clubs; the Camargue Kite Club and the new World Speed Tour Club – FFV. Thank you to all the volunteers, to Manfred and Pascal Maka and to all the partners of the Prince of Speed, to the guy from Manu K’nepa who picked up and recovered a lot of gear out at sea…” – Marine Tlattla (translated from French).
