The dates of the 2012 Luderitz Speed Challenge have been confirmed and registration opened. Scheduled to run from the 5th November until the 2nd December, the 2012 Luderitz World Speed Sailing attempt is set to be better than ever before.
Two years have been spent constructing a new course in Namibia and this will be the first time many of the top names have fired themselves down it attempting to break the 50-knot barrier. Built 300m further inland from the original course, the new speed run is said to have cleaner wind and be set at a better angle to the prevailing wind - all essential factors in world record attempts.
Current entries include Anders Bringdal, Farrel O'Shea, Andrea Baldini and Zara Davis, who will join them in November? Keep an eye on http://www.luderitz-speed.com/ to find out.
