Windsurfer sets new speed record

A British windsurfer has set a new world speed record - in an African desert!

Zara Davies windsurfed down a narrow man-made channel of water in Namibia for her attempt.

The area is well known for high winds, and she reached a top speed of 53 mph - travelling faster than a speedboat!

Zara picked up the sport when she was seven years old.
