A third round took place this afternoon in the building wind. With a packed race course the action was thick and fast. The most standout sailor was Björn himself who seemed to sit almost 2 knots above everyone else at all times! A truly impressive performance it is no wonder he was a happy man when we caught up with him just now as he was leaving the beach.
“Today the Dunkerbeck GPS Speed Challenge was truly born. Not only did we have great conditions and a fleet full of all kinds of abilities but myself, my father and my son could all race on the same course. I think my son Liam probably covered the most ground today as he hit the water first and just seemed to windsurf all day long, it will be interesting to compare our distances we windsurfed between myself and my family. It was also great to see other parents bringing along their kids and shows that this event is all about a fun atmosphere where all families are invited to join us. Tomorrow is another day and the forecast looks even better.”
Results for the third round will be tabulated later with the official results from the first two rounds also going live. We’ll be sure to post them here as soon as they are live.
