World%u2019s Fastest Sailboat Preps for Record-Breaking Run to Honolulu [VIDEO] | gCaptain - Maritime & Offshore - As soon as the weather forecasts present an opportune window, the crew of Hydroptère, a hydrofoil sailboat designed by French yachtsman Alain Thébault, will set sail from Los Angeles with plans to crush the trans-Pacific record to Honolulu.To do so, however, this boat will have to average greater than 17.21 knots over the 2215 mile course… and this boat can do 17 knots without even thinking about it. In fact, Hydroptère is the fastest sailboat on the planet. On December 21, 2008, the Hydroptère briefly reached 56.3 knots (104.3 km/h; 64.8 mph) near Fos-sur-Mer. The following year, she broke the 50 knot barrier for a nautical mile with a speed of 50.17 knots (92.91 km/h; 57.73 mph) in Hyères, France.
