Due to extreme weather conditions experienced during the 2017 dash, we have had to delay the release of any final race results. The safety of our competitors was our main focus on Saturday and we are currently working in conjunction with Mobii, our timing partner for the Langebaan Dash, to finalize the timing and results.
We will release the winners names and photos once all pending queries have been resolved. Results at present are available to review online: MOBII TIMING RESULTS please bear in mind that these may change, pending the outcome of the queries received.
Should you wish to log a query about your result, please do so by 5PM today by emailling us at email@example.com.
Thank you for your patience, support and sportsmanship!
Langebaan Downwind dash team - 9 January 2017
After many months of planning the 31st Downwind Dash the day finally arrived….a day that really tested our competitors to the max!
It was a fantastic event with competitors from all over the globe, all looking forward to participate The wind prediction promised pumping conditions. Wind of up to 25knots was expected!!! Perfect for great vibes and lots of adrenalin!
Well, we where however surprised with a wind of 40plus Knots!
"A special word of thanks to every Marker, Rescue and Sweeper-boat and rescue crew who limped out in the howling 40 plus knots wind until all competitors was safe, we commend you!
You are all worthy of recommendation for bravery while serving your fellow man better than yourself - as per status by Floris."
Thanks to ALL the competitors, volunteers and sponsors, without you this event wouldn’t have been possible.
Big thanks to Malcolm McGregor who kept this event alive since 1984
