The Lüderitz Speed Challenge 2008 is finished, and it was a triumph, both for the competitors, who broke almost every record there was to break, and for the organisers, ESF Events, who not only proved that the speed strip in Lüderitz is one of the best speed sailing destinations in the world, but that a world-class, WSSRC sanctioned event could be successfully run here.
Today is the last day of strong wind, co-operative tide, and time... the Luderitz Speed Challenge sees the last of the racing today, with the official closing ceremony tomorrow (Friday).
