This week German wave sailor Florian Jung steps up to the plate to take on the fastest riggers in the west! Are his rope tying antics quick enough or does he fumble too much, watch on and find out where he places.
If you think you’ve got what it takes to beat the best and you are on UK shores this weekend then why not track down our Boardseeker camera man, Alfie Hart, at the National Watersports Festival on Hayling Island. Maybe we’ll get a few readers attempts up here in the coming months.
A quick reminder of the rules.
Equipment must be totally separate at the start of the challenge. Mast separate, sail fully rolled up etc.
It must be rigged, ready to sail for a whole sessions (tension on down and out haul, ropes tied off, etc).
5 secs for outhaul issue
10 secs for downhaul issue
*New* rule – 5 secs for not connecting the rig to the board properly…
