Iron Duck is a documentary with sailors Bob Dill and Bob Schumacher. And their journey building and sailing the fastest wind-powered vehicle in the world.  


In 1999, they shattered the 100 mph mark and secured a place in the record books that held for ten years to the day. The wind-powered world speed record was an obsession of Dill's who thought he could break it with the initiative engineering ideas he had to build the Iron Duck. Bob Dill's infatuation with the speed record drew him to drag his best friend Schumacher along across the country every year for a decade.
