Caizergues breaks his own record at Luderitz


Alex Caizergues speed kiterThe 2009 Luderitz Speed event kicked off at the beginning of November, but until last week competitors had been frustrated by an unusually calm speed strip in Namibia. News started to filter through that the winds were picking up and looking good for the weekend and indeed proved to be the case with Alex Caizergues breaking his own kite speed record of 50.57 knots on Saturday, pushing it up to 50.98 knots. American rider Rob Douglas is also showing a clean pair of heels, with a best time of 50.95 knots on Sunday, agonisingly close to Frenchman Caizergues.
WATCH Alex's record breaking run from Saturday here!
The overall aim though for the kiters is the target of 51.36 knots, set by Alain Thebault's trimaran, L'Hydroptere in September.
The event continues in Luderitz throughout November, so keep checking back for more updates, or follow us on Facebook or Twitter to get results on-the-go.
