Ranking 2021

The 11th edition of the ODYSSEY of SPEED was again a great success and under the given circumstances with some remarkable results. 42 participants have uploaded 760 sessions, which sum up to 23.300 km.

We als had a premiere this year with the first Speed Training Camp in Karpathos. Under the instructions of Roberto Hofmann the participants had a lot of fun and got a lot of insights into the secrets of speed sailing.

Also this year Twan VERSEPUT was finally the winner add defended his last year’s title and is crowned once more with the title ODYSSEUS of SPEED 2021! It was again a close fight on the top between the two dutch sailors Eric and Twan and also on the places behind.

We also saw again an all-time best score with the Alpha500 of 51.76 km/h achieved by Twan.

The woman race was won by Sofia Koukouzeli, who managed also to achieve a remarkable 24. place overall.

Although we all were still impacted this year by the pandemic situation, still some speeders couldn’t made it to Greece, we are finally very happy with the competition this year. I think all contenders made the very best out it and most important in this time had a lot of fun on the water and on the beach. We missed again, however, some of our friends this year, but hope to see them next year again!

We would like to thank you all for your participation, your dedication and the effort you put into this! You made it again what it is , the ‘different GPSSS event’ – Thank You! Stay safe and healthy; see you all next year again.
