So, the latest german speedkite contest is done,
the weather was suboptimal, fog and light rain most of the time.
Wind varied greatly as well and of rather bad quality.
We had about 5 bft in the top end, and 1 bft in the low end.
At times during a single run...
Very unforgiving to all the highly tuned and sensible speedkites,
conditions less sensible kites had much less of a problem with.
As can be seen that not a single Long kite made the cut.

Here the top results of the individual classes
Place, pilot, kite, top speed in km/h

:shock: I have a Flexifoil Super 10 - I can't imagine how hard that must have been pulling when it was flying at 80mph! :shock:

Actually it was way less then expected. Could have flown it with 40dan line during that run and go faster. But i had chosen 60 dan lines because of the gusty winds.
