Last night (Sunday 2nd October 2016) on Channel 4 in the UK, speed obsessed TV presenter Guy Martin attempted to beat the speed record for a human-powered boat with help from Olympic legends Sir Chris Hoy and Sir Ben Ainslie.
But with this being a water-based challenge Guy and his team were smart enough to bring in the experts in the form of Xylem Analytics UK who helped measure and analyse key factors with water conditions. Using the SonTek's RiverSurveyor-M9 and software from HYPACK, we were able to determine current speed and water quality. Without it, who knows what lurks below the water surface!
Find out for yourself how Guy got on with his record breaking attempt by visiting the 4OD website and watching 'Speed with Guy Martin:' Hydrofoil.
