The challenge is on – fin & foil

The Dunkerbeck Speed challenge is back with a virtual tour that extends throughout the 2021 season and includes foiling and other new initiatives.

Event press release

The Dunkerbeck Speed Challenge crew have made the following press release;

Because of the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions we decided to continue with the online format and make it even bigger: The Dunkerbeck Speed Challenge Virtual Global Tour consists of 3 events:
 
Period 1:  Gran Canaria Dunkerbeck Speed Challenge 01.04. – 31.05.21
Period 2: Summer Edition of the Dunkerbeck Speed Challenge 01.07. – 31.08.21
Period 3: The Third 01.10. – 30.11.21
Each period will have its winner and rankings.
 
Also, we give a special topic to each period
Period 1: Who’s the fastest on 1/2hr sailing (a tribute to Defi long distance race)
Period 2: Who’s the fastest alpha racer (summer fun, good vibes)
Period 3: Who’s the fastest on 500 m (because it’s the Lüderitz World record time)
 
In each Period we will award Top 3 in the following categories:
OPEN Male & Female
Grand Master (51-60)
Super Master (61-70)
UltimateMaster (71-99)
Youth (0-10)
Junior (11-14)
Junior Plus (15-18)
Foil (fromwww.gps-foilsurfing.com)

 
To equal the differences between windsurf spots, we’ll also raffle in prices between all competitors.
