The Sailrocket team had been developing their concept over a decade for an offshore sailing vessel using an innovation which helped them to smash the world speed sailing record.
“The Sailrocket broke the world speed sailing record, reaching 59.23 knots (109.69kph) over 500 metres in Walvis Bay, Namibia.”
They believed the craft they were working on could re-define the performance of wind driven boats across our worldwide oceans, stunning the sailing world in the process.
Formaplex was selected to work with the Sailrocket team to provide composites tooling and components to various parts of the project.

The Sailrocket programme has established itself as an epicentre for development of the next generation of high speed foils. The whole project has used innovation and technology. Including low the latest composites materials technology from Formaplex, aerodynamics such as the revolutionary asymmetric platform, wind and hydrofoil combination and it’s set to redefine the future, inspiring teams to push further.
