WALVIS BAY SPEEDSAILING RECORD ATTEMPT – FIRST RECORDS BROKEN!
The first windy day here in Walvis Bay brought again a real flood of new records on the nautical mile course set up today.
Bjorn Dunkerbeck missed the world record by only 0.5 knots, but set a production record on the mile with 39.52 knots. Hennie Bredenkamp (RSA), Alain de Gendt (BEL), Dave White (GBR), Franz Grabner (AUT), Frank Stein (NAM), Nick Vardalachos (GRE), Thomas Doeblin (GER), Morten Knutsen (NOR), Maaike Kallenborn (NED) on the windsurfers and Juergen Geiger (NAM) as well as Rob Munro (GBR) on the Kiteboard all set new national records on the mile (records subject to WSSRC ratification). For details please check the results page.
The forecast for tomorrow is even better so we are expecting new records set again tomorrow, hopefully we see the first world record going down !
