"Big news from Makkum!!! In the deepest secret this last winter we have worked on our own speed channel. Last Saturday, for the first time, we tested it and already we can see it will be possible to hit speeds close to those registered in the canal at Luderitz.

The official opening will take place on a good week, after the opening goes directly the funsport Makkum GPS Challenge begin!

Everyone is welcome at the official opening on the beach of Makkum!"
