Luderitz, namibia

South Africa's Sjoukje Bredenkamp (Naish Cape Dr) just beat her own World Record at the http://www.luderitz-speed.com event. The queen of speed has pushed her new record to 38.45kts for 500m on the first day of the competition.

Alex Caizegues (F-One) pushed the Men's record to 44.55kts beating Olaf's 3 year old record of 41.79kts. Seb managed 43.93 and Lighty (Taro) takes a new SOUTH AFRICAN record to 42 something. Manu Taub produced a life best and continued the "Comeback part Deux" to 43.69 kts. jerome billa managed a 43 someting too.

I have only had a few SMS's so we should get more info soon.

Well done to all and I wonder what will happen over the next 30 days?????

Cheers

Rob
