Speedsurfers searching for their champion
Since the weekend (31.August) run in Orth on Fehmarn in the windsurfing class "Speed" the German Championships. Among the 62 participants are eight women. This is a record in every way because so many riders have never registered. Since the number of participants is limited to 65, only day visitors can now be admitted.
So far (as of 4 September), the number of official races is very “mau”: The wind does not play. An official race can only be started from 5 wind speeds. The daily routine will be announced at the morning Skippers' Meeting. Depending on the wind forecast, the first race may start at 8 o'clock or the last at 17 o'clock. From Thursday, the weather forecast bids more wind - let's see what happens.
As a sponsor, by the way - once again - Aquapac. We support the drivers with our waterproof bags.

13.08.2019 - Help with water damage
"Rescue Kit" in the field test
The Einhaus group blog tested our Rescue Kit and concluded, "Data recovery on non-waterproof smartphones and other devices does not hurt to have such a rescue kit in place, whether it's always working or not it's not a guarantee, but if the precious photos and documents are suddenly locked up in a water-damage device, any means are right to recover them, right? "
The blog has "sacrificed" two functioning mobile phones and thrown them into the water: both have survived this practical test. Both devices were packaged in the Rescue Kit, both working again after the test. If you want to read the complete test, here is the Link
And here is the link to the rescue set.

Summer, sun, sand - and thieves: Where to go with Smartphone & Co.?
Smartphones have become our constant companions. No place where we do not take it with us, including the beach, the swimming lake the swimming pool or the pool. It would be too bad if you can not share nice moments or take pictures.
If there are no dangers lurking there: thieves, sun heat, sand and water. Everyone is after the good piece. The loss of the device could perhaps still cope, but not the loss of data.
This is where Aquapac comes into play. We can help against all four problems. Just put the smartphone, mini-tablet or tablet in our waterproof bag and take it everywhere, even into the water or underwater. The waterproof seal Aquapac even guarantees a depth of ten meters. And best of all, smartphones and the like remain fully operable through the slide, be it talking on the phone, texting, listening to music or operating the touch screen. Even the photo function is completely guaranteed by a special photo film. A photo of the reef dwellers to the loved ones? That would be something.

19.09.2018 - Wind God has a look
In early September, the German championship in speed wind surfing again took place on the Orther bay in front of Fehmarn. Birger Bruhns, who has been sponsored by Aquapac for years, was also there. He occupies the tenth place among 30 participants. In the men's race, Michael Naumann won, Anja Kruse took the lead in the women's category.
The protected but large bay of Orth has the advantage of designing the course depending on the wind direction. In order to catch enough wind for the Speed ??DM in the persistent summer weather, a good line belongs to the wind gods. After a few practice runs, the Connections paid off: The first three races could be driven. With two won races, Michael Naumann from Warnemünde took the lead. Uwe Sören Schmidt was second, followed by Ralf Ewers. The maximum speed was 34.5 knots (63.89 km / h) on this day. For the women, Anja Kruse from Hannover was ahead of Birgit Höfer from Albershausen and Katrin Nürnberg from Lübeck.
After two sunny days of lull - Armin Höfer won the buoy throwing - two more races were held on September 6th, this time on the shortened 250 meter track. Both Uwe Sören Schmidt and Michael Naumann were able to secure another victory here. It was also Michael Naumann who secured the title on the final day in the sixth and final race with another victory. Vice-champion was Uwe Sören Schmidt and last year's champion Ralf Ewers was third.
Anja Kruse won the ladies' ranking, followed by last year's winner Birgit Höfer and Katrin Nürnberg. In the youth classification Henrik Ewers won ahead of Michel Gutbier and Patrick Feldmann.
Birger Bruhns, whose GPS loggers were packaged safely and watertight in the Aquapac as always, drew his own conclusions. In six races in eight days, the wind was so weak that "unfortunately" only the biggest sails with 7.8 and 8.6 square meters were used. Birger Bruhns: "I am with more than 100 kilos the lighter riders but something inferior. "
The articles from our so varied assortment were very well received by the participants at the award ceremony. Aquapac had again provided products.

26.08.2018 - Speedsurfer - German Championship 2018
German Championship in Speed Windsurfing 2018
The material is spotted and directed, possibly even packed: On September 1, the German championships in speed windsurfing will begin on Fehmarn. Orth is firmly in the hands of the surfers until Saturday, September 8th. If there were not enough races, the Sunday is also added. The German Champions are determined in three classes: men, women and young people, seniors are evaluated separately in individual classes.
Aquapac is a sponsor.
Speedsurfing is the Formula 1 wind-powered water craft. Speeds beyond the 60 km / h let the adrenalin boil in the veins, the speed surfers report. Dangers become an exact measured course of 100, 250 or 500 meters
In the fight against the clock, the Speed discipline is aimed primarily at the individualists who have perfectly matched their material to tickle every ounce of speed out of the board. In slalom, the fastest material is less important than board control and a good jibe.
How do speed surfers measure speed?
In many national and international speed races, an almost exact speed is determined by electronic hand timekeeping and transmitted immediately to a scoreboard. Later, the exact times are checked via the video recordings and corrected if necessary.
Since 2006, almost exclusively GPS devices are used, creating many new options in the area selection, and the surfer can immediately read his times on his GPS device. The most used GPS device is the GT-31 from Amaryllo or Locosys. For the Aquapac has a matching waterproof wrist bag on offer.
Where do races take place?
For speed surfing the speed surfers need as smooth as possible water and wind with at least 5 Beaufort. In addition to the strength of the wind, the direction of the speed is crucial. Ideal are wind directions with about 114 to 120 degrees, in the extreme case up to 150 degrees to the driven course.
Since the speed route should be as parallel to the shore as possible due to the time measurement and the smooth water, there are some preferred spots: Starting from the nearby areas on the North and Baltic Sea or in the south of France (Leucate), the legendary Tarifa in Spain and - known by various World Records - the beach of Sotavento on Fuerteventura.
12.07.2018 - 30.000 CHF for a children's home
