BOLDNESS CATALYZES INNOVATION
Syroco’s first performance is to develop a speed craft designed to shatter the sailing speed record.
The bar is set: 150 km/h
Keeping true to Syroco’s pioneering spirit and thirst for discovery, research has already made it possible to question fundamental paradigms in naval architecture. For only research, coupled with excellence in commitment and execution, can make possible the Moonshot Challenges, the pioneering achievements targeted by Syroco.

THE SPEED RECORD CAMPAIGN
Using the principles of Concept & Innovation Design, select best concept and design the speed craft.
Run numerical simulation, test components and build a scale model.
Build a radio-controlled, at-scale, prototype of the speedcraft.
Present radio-controlled prototype to press and sponsors.
Run on-water test campaigns to acquire data for finalizing speedcraft systems.
Operate prototype consistently and safely, at increasing speeds.
Based on learnings from the prototype, build and test the speedcraft.
With maximum visibility and media coverage, shatter the world sailing speed record!
Showcase the achievement through a world tour and a TV documentary.
ALEX CAIZERGUES FASTEST MAN ON WATER
Alex Caizergues, co-founder of Syroco, is the pilot-in-command of the speed craft. Some would say that “Speed” is his middle name... here is an extract of Alex’ impressive palmares:

Four times Kite Speed World Champion (2007, 2009, 2013, 2017)
Current Kite Speed Recordman at 107.36 km/h
Alongside the engineering team, Alex’ sights are now set on the 150 km/h target!
