The video doesn't show the record run, so I don't think the laydown is at 50 knots, still looks good though.

It surprises me that Dunkerbeck is so far down the list.

I was going to say slow but its still a good 10 knots quicker than me!!!!!!

According to me, Bjorn is not there yet because of his fresh born baby.
It seems that he will arrive on Tuesday.
That's the day before D-day, because the wind forecasts give for next Wednesday the strongest winds so far.
