This year, in this exceptional situation that the whole world is experiencing with all the limitations that are being imposed on us, we are happy to continue with the competition format that we have been carrying out since 2015 and to make it even more interesting for all windsurfers.
The online gps- based raceing format on www.gps-speedsurfing.com is a perfect way to compete and maintain the social distancing at the same time.
Due to current COVID-19 restrictions unfortunately the Defi –Event, where we are organising since six years “a race in the race” had to be postponed to next year but online we can compete!
To make it more accessible to all windsurfers in the world and because there are many more spots where you can do this distance, we decided to rank the fastest average speed on 250m.
As a tribute to the Defi Wind we’ll have a first period from the 21st of May till the 21st of June and as an ADD ONa second period from the 01.07. till the 31st of August.
Because it’s also our main motivation to mobilizethe entire windsurfing community and regain relative normality through our sport as soon as possible using current technology to compete together from any country in the world without traveling, while promoting windsurfing as an ecological sport and healthy lifestyle.
What's NEW thins year?
this year we’ll also rank:
YOUNG GUNS (all kids under 18 years- from 2002 on)
GRAND MASTER+ (50 years+ born in 1970 and before)
(what’s alpha race? A small explanation for those who do not know what it is, is to do a distance of 250mts a jibe and another 250mts back. The trick is that there can be no more than 50m between the starting point and the return point, and this is where the ability of the windsurfer to set the fastest round-trip course and tell you about the pass comes into play.)
So everybody starts to tune his gear because this year the fastest can win:
