In San Francisco Bay Friday a new record was set for speeding across the water.

The Hydroptere DCNS reached a speed of 43.1 mph during a nautical mile run off Pier 39. That's a speed sailing record, but it's not even close to what the boat can do.

The hydro-tear is nine stories tall, 79-feet wide, and has been clocked at 58 mph, making it the fastest sailing boat in the world.
