Robbie Douglas wins the North American Speed Sailing Invite title

"Robbie Douglas of Vineyard Haven won the second annual North American Speed Sailing Championships Invitational on Tuesday. The event is sponsored by the Black Dog and Lynch Associates and took place between October 15 and October 30 on Sengekontacket Pond, Katama Bay, and off of Cape Poge. Thirteeen of the world's best speed sailors competed for a $30,000 purse.

Mr. Douglas, the world speed record holder, won the $10,000 first prize. The United States claimed the Lynch Cup and $2,500 dollars for winning the team standings over Europe. Islanders Jamie and Morgan Douglas, Brock Callen, and Bill Lynch also raced in the event with incredible performances.

Damien Leroy came in second, Alex Caizergues was third, Brock Callen took fourth, and Jamie Douglas was fifth. Robbie Douglas had the fastest average speed at 48.69. Jamie Douglas was second fastest (44.853), followed by Damien Leroy (44.583), Brock Callen (44.040), and Alex Caizergues (43.075)."

What an amazing end to an incredible event! A big thanks goes out to all who helped! Brock Sr. For a wonderful event and coordinating all the different locations for racing! A huge thanks To Bill Lynch and wife Beth for all they did for the riders and making sure it was an event to remember. To the Black Dog family for the wonderful hospitality!

I was honored to race with the worlds finest! Thank you to my sponsors and for all they do for me as an athlete: Cabrinha Kites, GoPro, Lynch Associates, The Black Dog, Aguera Boards, Rista Fins, Corner Five, and Costa Del Mar.

Are there any board manufactures making speed boards?
What are the instruments on some of the riders upper arms?

Nice to see Rob show the talent and speed :naughty:


I dont think there are production speed boards, but dont know for sure...

The instruments are the GPS'es, on the picture it is the GT31.

I think most (including many freeracers and me) are using GT31 which is a very low cost and advanced doppler GPS.

Not very "user friendly" interface, but it works awesome and the software is tailormade/designed for speed wind and kitesurf :thumb:

:D Peter
