Scuttlebutt: Video of the Week

(November 27, 2009) The Luderitz Speed Challenge annually attracts the world's top kitesurfers to the remote Namibian town of Luderitz during the month of November to compete against each other and the clock. While there are an abundance of record sub-categories, the big prize is to be the worlds fastest sail craft over a 500 meter course.

See what makes the Luderitz Speed Challenge the most radical and exciting speed sailing event in the world -- kitesurfers pushing 50 knots right on the edge of the hard shore of a lagoon with winds blowing over 40 knots.
