So he really did it: Antoine Albeau has broken Finian Maynard's record. It wasn't a huge jump - only about a half knot - but consider that the guy has just flown back in from Florida where he placed 3rd in the Calema Midwinters - in super light conditions. So he's probably still a bit jet lagged, it's only his third session ever on the canal, and he dominates (Finian, who rules the place, didn't get over 46 knots - so it's clear the conditions weren't exactly a cake walk). Hats off. Tomorrow's conditions are supposed to be good, too - perhaps there'll be more news to celebrate.
