UK Speedsailors – some of our fastest windsurfers

In this section of our website we’d like to introduce you to some of the people who we have supplied GPS units to over the last few years. We are proud to have been a very small part of these great sailors successes. We hope to see more sailors make it to this page of UK Speed Demons over the next few months. There’s a few new faces on the speedsailig scene that I have not had the pleasure of sailing with. Ben Proffitt being one who has BLASTED to the scene – getting to No 3 on the UK list in just a couple of years !

I’d like to give a big “Thank You” to Marcia York, Dave White and Zara Davis for a vast majority of the photos on this website. If I have missed any of my windsurfing friends below… don’t worry, just let me know and I’ll add you ASAP.

Or – use the Speedsailing APP on a Garmin Fenix 3HR

The Garmin App called Wind/Kite Surfing Datafield will give you live feedback on your best 2s, 5s and 10s runs. It’s been written to mimic the functionality of the Locosys devices. The only thing you can’t do with it is break a National or International record – for that you MUST have the Locosys GPS devices with Doppler speed verification ….
