AA did 49knots fast man
but didn't the Aussie guy just do 50 knots on KA sails

Chris Lockwood is his name
I just went to the site
Chris was 50.1knots for two seconds, but it really needs to be about 19 seconds (I think)at this speed to break the 50 knot barrier
Chris was 49.8 for 100 metres and
49knots for half the distance (250m)
I assume AA did the whole 500m at 49.09 knots

Chris did 47.6k for 500m on a gps. Antoine did 49.09k over a 500m course (may have travelled slightly further than 500m, curved line etc). But which ever, AA is now the official worls record holder.

A few changes last with the speed authorities, so sailspeedrecords are out of date. Heres the new link:
