Mike Newman is the fastest blind man on water, today he increased that speed to 105 mph.
Crewing Silverline with Drew Langdon, Newman pushed the UIM Marathon Class A Outerlimits hull to a new blind speed record.
The record run was particularly impressive because Silverline had only been launched late last night.
Silverline suffered a heart breaking sinking during last year’s Cowes Torquay Cowes race, in which it was recovered a day later.
The countless hours of work to get the boat back together certainly paid off for Newman and Langdon today.
