Vmax peak 99.5 km/h.
No one yet 100 km/h.
Another magical barrier ...

Now, it is waiting till Saturday, when a similar day like today is forecasted.
Bjorn will get some time to practise and to get used to the canal.

Hello,
Looking at the official website, I understand that BD has reached 49,53 knots after only two runs. I guess that the battle with AA will be great if weather conditions remain like this and that the 100 km/h barrier will be broken.
Cheers
Philippe

So it has happened.
Yesterday, AA also broke the 100km/h barrier, i.e. in VMAX.

Interview of Antoine, Anders and Cédric (20 min, sorry in french) about the water & wind conditions, gear used, speed and direct comparison with Sebastien Cattelan's kitesurf speed, safety issues and future development of sails, fins and boards: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10200160145392251

A very good summary movie (episode 1) : http://www.windsurfjournal.com/artic...episode-1,1930

Next week, the canal will be open to kiters...

Cheers !
