Worlds biggest race starts Sunday Sept. 20 Fehmarn Germany

Postby Toby » Fri Sep 18, 2015 5:35 pm

After 1 year break the Coast 2 Coast race is on again!
A race between Germany and Denmark, and back to Germany again.
Originally planned for Saturday, 19th of September, the date has been moved by one day, due to a better forecast on Sunday.

600 amateurs and pros, racer and freestyler from 19 countries will start with Twintip or directionbal boards (no foil boards allowed).
The mass starts at the same time from the Niobe Strand on Fehmarn, and the racers have to race for about 40km to Denmark, and about 40 km back to Germany.

The start is around 11:00 and prize giving is scheduled for around 14:00.

Why no foils? I think they had them last year.

Big congratulations to my two surf buddies Andreas and Markus placing 1st and 3rd in the twintip category. Andreas was on a Sonic 15m and Markus on a Ozone R1 13m.

I am pretty sure that both foils and hydrofoils are allowed :thumb:

But noone has posted the results yet :argue:

8) Peter

PS: Damn, just read the first post here now, hydrofoils are not allowed...
That is pityful, they wont allow hydrofoils because they will smoke each and everyone on other boards :roll:
But how many got a raceboard now ? I dont know anyone, except for one kid hoping for the olympics :naughty:

The results are not interesting whatsoever now, what a joke :cry:

Florian Gruber won with Ozone R1 11m and a course race board.
Got to love the babes in their beach outfit.

I did finish 79th (rounded the buoy) with a Lieuwe Shotgun 133x40 twintip and a Flysurfer Boost 9m. Unfortunate I could not use the Flysurfer Sonic 11m cause I did go wrong with the launch. It was a top event! 8)
