Downwind Dash - 33 Years of Speed & Stamina

From : March 2017

The 33rd running of the annual Langebaan Downwind dash was a ‘mutant monster’ of epic proportions. Competitors were scattered all over the bay and on the beaches beacuse of tough conditions. And to the best of my knowledge the numbers were as follows:

• Over 200 kites started, 68 finished, it was carnage with the wind topping out at 53 knots. 

• 28 windsurfers started, 12 finished

• 30 x SUPs started and 26 finished

• 8 x Paddle skis starte
