Dunkerbeck Speed Challenge – Virtual Global Tour

3 Events on fin & foil throughout the year + overall winners

Covid-19 restrictions unfortunately continue to determine our lives and converting event planning into a big challenge. For this reason we decided to continue with the online format and make it even bigger: The Dunkerbeck Speed Challenge Virtual Global Tour consists of 3 events:


Period 1:  Gran Canaria Dunkerbeck Speed Challenge 01.04. - 31.05.21

Period 2: Summer Edition of the Dunkerbeck Speed Challenge 01.07. - 31.08.21

Period 3: The Third 01.10. - 30.11.21

Each period will have their winner and rankings.


Also we give a special topic to each period

Period 1: Who's the fastest on 1/2hr sailing (tribute to Defi long distance race)

Period 2: Who's the fastest alpha racer (summer fun, good vibes)

Period 3: Who's the fastest on 500 m (because it's the Lüderitz World record time)


In each Period we will award Top 3 in the following categories:

OPEN MALE & FEMALE · Grand Master (51-60) · Super Master (61-70) · Ultimate Master (71-99) · Youth (0-10) · Junior (11-14) · Junior Plus (15-18) · Foil (from


To equal the differences between windsurf spots, we'll also raffle in prices between all competitors.


Make sure that you don’t miss a period because at the end of the three events we'll determine the overall winners of the Dunkerbeck Speed Challenge Virtual Tour - who will receive the big prices!


So everybody starts to tune his gear because at the End of the year the fastest can win:

For the Top 3 in all our categories of the Gran Canaria Dunkerbeck Speed Challenge (Period 1) you can win cool trucker caps from Chris Benz, GoPro accessories, Daily Dose merchandising, AV face masks, shirts & lenyards from Dunkerbeck
