North Sea Crossing Record Attempt


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:
