Benoît Gaudiot (FRA-909) is 15 years old and lives in Sanary Sur Mer between Marseille and L’Almanarre, South of France. He recently broke his personal speed records on the windsurfing- and kite board.
“I’ve sailed in the Canal of Les Saintes-Maries de la Mer two weeks ago. I’ve made a video of this magical day with perfect flat water that ended well my 14th year of my life. I’ve broken the 40 knots topspeed barrier in windsurfing (40.14 knots) and kitesurfing (42.34 knots). A new goal for the year of my 15 year is to break the 45 knots barrier!”
Watch Benoît Gaudiot in his exellent video! Will he beat Antoine’s record of 52,05 knots once? He definitely has a lot of talent and his position on board looks great! It’s impressive how fast young kids already can sail nowadays!
Impressive. A bit like Finian Maynard 20 years ago? Keep going kid!
