A Goldfields land sailor says that he’s broken the land sailing speed record for the mini land yacht category, reaching a new speed of 110 kilometres an hour. As wild weather swept across the region last weekend, keen land sailor Bryan Cook was in the thick of it. As strong winds whipped across the vast white surface of Lake Lefroy near Kambalda, Bryan says he set a new world record for the mini-land yacht class he operates. "I came in, I had three digits on the GPS that I could read, but I couldn't actually see the numbers because I was focusing on what I was doing. And when I pulled up, 110,” he said.
