They are at it again! A new record has been set, this time sailing dead upwind...that's right, directly into the wind (not tacking). The NALSA Board of Directors has ratified the following two records achieved by Rick Cavallaro on New Jerusalem Airport near Tracy California on June 16, 2012, with the wind turbine driven sailing craft, Blackbird. Mr. Cavallaro achieved a maximum boat speed to wind speed ratio of 2.1:1 while sailing directly into the wind and a maximum speed in a wind turbine driven sailing craft of 22.9 mph on a different run.
On July 2, 2010 on El Mirage Dry Lake, Blackbird sailed directly down wind at a speed of 27.7 mph in a 10 mph wind to set a first record for the ratio of Boat Speed to true wind speed of 2.8. BlackBird was designed and built by the Thin Air Designs team (Rick Cavallaro and John Borton) and sailed by Rick.More information.


Greenbird set a new landsailing speed record. On March 26, 2009 as 40mph + winds canceled NALSA racing and sometimes totally obscured Ivanpah Dry Lake with blowing dust. Richard Jenkins piloted Ecotricity's Greenbird to a new land speed record of 126.2 mph (203.09 kph). Detailed Data
The same day, a new Blokart record was also set at Red Lake, AZ (62 mph, 100kph!) Pod and 2 meter sail.
