Every day wind and speed sailing with some friends. After the dutch week in July we saw now three German speed sailors pushing each other every day!
With Christian Bornemann, Björn Haacke und myself (Tim Otte) a good competition was done. Various conditions ranging from 20 to 45 knots allowed us to sail and score good results in all categories.
Nevertheless the first two places of the overall scoreboard, still maintained by Twan and Eric, remain untouchable so far. With good overall performance Christian (6th place) and myself (3rd) are catching up. Björn was also pushing hard on rental equipment and we are still waiting for his GPS tracks. Minos and Konstantinos and 4th and 5th place still in good position too.
Total number of sessions uploaded 422, distance sailed 14500 km.
One of the best tavernas on the island of Karpathos is becoming a sponsor of our event. The Four Seasons Taverna in Amoopi is famous for its excellent traditional greek food, as well as for the Pizzas and Pasta courses.
Four Seasons Taverna has sponsored as a prize a dinner for four hungry speed surfers and friends! Very much appreciated!
