North Sea Crossing Record Attempt

2013/09/22

Ron Kleverlaan, owner and marine surveyor at Waterman Marine Consultancy BV is making an attempt to break the sailing record between Lowestoft and the Dutch Coast over a distance of 105 nautical miles on his windsurf raceboard. Current record was set in 2009 by a Volvo Open 70ft Race Yacht skippered by Bouwe Bekking in a time of 5 hours and 36 minutes. Ron’s goal is to do the distance in less than 5 hours. The attempt will happen sometime in october/november 2013 when weather conditions are good. The crossing can be followed ┬álive here: www.northseacrossing.com
