Sebastian Kornum has taken the 2012 NeilPryde Venø Grand Prix, the second stage of the biggest and most popular event series in Danish windsurfing.
The long distance races around scenic Danish islands are simple concept. Windsurfers and kiters meet in one big fleet in a social but competitive atmosphere, with no rules for equipment and no limits for the wind, so the participants are sure to have fun no matter what the weather forecast.
A total of 47 riders enjoyed 18-24 knots of wind and blue skies, during the fantastic 25-kilometre race around the beautiful island Venø. Winner Sebastian Kornum has beaten the record with an incredible 25 knots of average speed.
In the Freestyle division, it was Rasmus Øgelund who took gold, followed by Jonas Knudsen and Sebastian Kornum. In Speed, Danni Jakobsen made the fastest time ahead of Justesen.
"We run it all in one day, and we make no restrictions on equipment, wind conditions or technical level. The GP races are all about having fun, and we have room for everyone. In many ways, the Ø-Grand Prix goes back to the roots of windsurfing", says organizer Torben Kornum.
