HISTORY: In 1988 speedsailing was one of the most popular forms of windsurfing competition. To grow the sport in the USA event organisers decided simplicity was the key and 100m courses were a practical alternative to the 500m ones used overseas.

The US Boardsailing association became involved and sanctioned the results over 100m. From a practical point of view there were more locations in the USA where 100m courses could be setup. Both the organisers and US Boardsailing were right, by 1991 there were over 500 sailors posting 100m speeds in the US Boardsailing sanctioned Ken Winner Jantzen Speed Series. 

In 1993 the overall 100m USBA record was set at 44.45 knots, a record that stands to this day. In all over 1100 windsurfers participated and had 100m rankings from 1990 to 1995.

2017 Fastest Speed: 42.63 knots for the 100m, achieved on Dec. 29th at ARooBar by Roo.
