Luderitz Speed Challenge US speed sailing record with a 47.6

Postby chipmunk » Wed Sep 17, 2008 5:26 pm

It was a phenomenal Day 1 – Kitesurfer Rob Douglas (US) goes smoking into the lead, and shatters the previous US speed sailing record with a 47.639kt run. Once teething troubles were sorted out with equipment on this first day of the Lüderitz Speed Challenge, and everyone had settled into the relentless blast of the wind, there was no end to the high speed runs.

Rob Douglas: 47,639
Alex Caizergues: 47,313
Sebastien Cattelan: 47,175
Manu Taub: 45,196
Christophe Pringuenon: 45,112
Bjorn Dunkerbeck: 44,779
Jerome Bila: 43,986
Hennie Bredenkamp (k): 43,807
Taro Niehaus: 43,279
Benoit Moussilmani: 43,183
