With a bit of headwind, but the current in the back, South African Kenny Rice won the men race, only 8 seconds in front of German Gordon Harbrecht. The women race was won by Spanish Chloë Bunnett.
It was a tough decission for the organisation to make the "downwind"call, on saturday. Because suddenly the wind changed in the morning, and there was a hard head wind during the first part of the race. But a little bit over 100 athletes managed to complete 19k race from Hargen to Castricum aan Zee.
At the Dutch Championships, Joep van Bakel was first, Marco van Noort second and Hans Smits 3th.
The complete results can be found on the Cloudtimer site.
We were testing the KNRM Helps app, you can watch some of the competitors track here(you have to scroll to around 2 pm)
Pictures and movie will be published later.
