The First Finishers
Texel | 11-06-2005 15:26:00 | By: Louise van der Sluis
Wouter Samama and Jeroen van Leeuwen on their Tornado have set a new Round record in a marvelous race. They passed the finish line in two hours and ten minutes, which is twenty minutes faster then the previous record from Hans Bouscholte, dating from 2003. The team stranded at the VC-buoy breaking their rudder. “ Luckily we had brought some rope with us, so we could fix it to function” says the thrilled Samama. Having passed the VC–buoy it was a matter of jibing and speeding. In one straight we could race to the point. The first finishers, who have been sailing for two and a halve years together, where surprised by their spectacular finishing time. “Only in the end we thought that we could do it”. The couple was honored the minute that they had arrived on the beach.





The Overall- Winners
Texel | 11-06-2005 15:25:00 | By: Louise van der Sluis
Mischa Heemskerk and Sander de Boer are most likely the overall winners of the 28th Round of Texel. The team (that sailed together this year for the first time) finished in second place, was widely distanced from Wouter Samama and Jeroen van Leeuwen. We started of carefully because of the wild sea. After that we just hit it! We could take second position because the two Formule- 18 boats that were in front of us flipped over” says de Boer. Heemskerk tells that the first part was hard work because off the strong wind and the powerful waves. “ We sometimes sailed threw four meter high waves. That is super intense!” He described the race not as extremely difficult. “It was tough but I have been through worse on a Texel’s round”. Even though the official results are not known until nine pm, Heemskerk has no doubt about his victory. “We are the winners!”

The Koog | 11-06-2005 13:08:00 | By: Louise of of the lock New official Ronde-record, which were sailed today Wouter Samama and Jeroen van Leeuwen, have been determined on 2 hours, 11 minutes and 11 seconden.

Wind was F5 to 6 about 20 degrees of dead onshore.  From what I can gather from people locally it was carnage, many boats/masts broken.  Having been there, the Texel beach also has a strong undertow on it so depending which side of the 20 degrees the wind was you end up with a strong tide taking you away from the wind and big (2m+) waves pushing you back onto the beach.

About 600 entered, 200+ started and about 120 finished.

the thing is this race is lacking all the top tornado sailors as they are in La Rochelle for the worlds so might have had an even faster time if they had of been in attendance!

saying that i did hear hobie had charterd a plane to fly mitch booth(i think) from texel to the worlds and pay for ground crew to sort the boats out in each location its a good life for some and people say hobie dont buy results!!

Booth was to race the custom Hobie Fox......  Stretched to 10 foot wide and all Carbon.  Much like Macca's Super Taipan.  The boat did not make the start line...  See picture of the Black boat up top which is the boat and you will see why
