Event description and NOR

The ‘ INDIAN OCEAN WINDSURFING FAST GPS CHALLENGE 2024’ starts 20-5-2024 and ends on 20-9- 2024

Based on your fastest speed runs during the year and only on sessions from INDIAN OCEAN WATER

(SOUTH AFRICA - AUSTRALIA - BURMA - COMOROS - INDIA - INDONESIA - KENYA - LA RÉUNION - MAURITIUS - MAYOTTE - MOZAMBIQUE - SEYCHELLES ).

All peoples based speed-sailors using the GPS Speed-surfing site will be automatically entered. Speed challenge sections are designated for Men, Women, under 16s & veterans. So on any windy day take your GPS out at your favourite speed spot on the island, which could be on the sea or your local lake and set your own personal record. Then upload your session to see how you did against the rest of the islands speed challengers on www.gps-speedsurfing.com 

Rules

Video timing equipment is not used. Only hand held gps units are used. This enables sessions be made at very short notice. The top main units used are the Navi GT31 or GW-60. But other  units e.g. Garmin Fenix, Suunto units plus older units like the Garmin Foretrek, Forerunner and Geko are still acceptable as well as phone GPS (but may not be as accurate).

Rules dictated by gps-speedsurfing with added regulations by the Mauritius Speed League. 

The speed challenge provides for a number of speed CHALLENGES :

  • 10s
  • 10s X 5
  • 500m
  • 1/2 hour speed
  • Alpha Speed.

THE WINNER will be the overall points total from the above challenges.

The GPS units must record at a minimum of two second time intervals. The GPS tracks (your speed session files) are up-loaded to a computer and speeds are calculated on gps software such as the free to use ‘gps action replay’ or highly recommended ‘GPS Results’. However the gps speed-surfing website also has it own server side processing software to calculate your speed files too.

Qualifying Equipment:

Any windsurfing equipment on FIN ONLY is allowed.
