Meet the Champion!

it was a real pleasure to meet our last year’s champion Konstantinos Papandrikopoulos on the beach of his home spot Drepano. We found a very friendly and ambitious young sportsman.

We took also the chance to hand over to him our new trophy for his well deserved victory in 2018.

Konstantinos is currently ranked on fourth place and still is in race for defending his title. Keep pushing, Konstantinos!

The new Trophy

After Minos Efstathiadis has won the Odyssey of Speed three times our old trophy remains with him. Well deserved!

The new trophy has been designed and built in cooperation by Christian Stemmer and Marcus Lappe. A combination from wood (oak and ash-tree) and acrylic glass gives it a very special appearance. Really impressive and awesome!

Eric setting the top scores!

As every year Eric Groot van Ederen from the Netherlands is participating in the Odyssey fo Speed. Last year he managed to become 2nd Overall and obviously this year he is going for more. Just two days on Karpathos he is screwing up the score board by smashing three top scores (max. avg, 2sec max and 500m) As usual with 7.0 sail … in 40 knots … Max Speed 42.5 Knots!

check out his post on GP3S:

The event is entering it’s hottest phase. Stay tuned!
