    Father and son team Vittorio and Nico Malingri have had their non stop Trans Atlantic by Beach Cat record ratified by the WSSRC with a time of 11 days, 1 hour, 9 minutes and 30 seconds on the Dakar to Guadeloupe route.

    "The distance is roughly the same as between New York and San Francisco. Malingri’s maintained an average speed of 9.62 knots, beating the previous record (11:11:25:42) by over 10 hours set by French duo Benoit Lequin and Pierre-Yves Moreau in 2007."
