Windyty Alpboys photo Trogrim HalvariCongratulations to the Swiss/German Windyty Alpboys in conquering the Varanger Peninsula as the fastest team ever! Close run with Norwegian Express all the way to Urdfjellet before checkpoint Vadsø, but the Norwegians lost time there when rigging down to smaller kites. The Windyty kids from the Alps got 30 minutes on them, and kept it to Vardø where they were clocked in by crew at 15:38 Wednesday April 6th 2016!

4 hours and 25 minutes after leaving Vadsø, The Windyty Alpboys arrived Votteskaret finish in Vardø and could start the celebration! “Very happy to be at the finish. Have been a hard race, a long race. The toughest, but best race we have done”, Florian Grüber and Jonas Lengwiler said, as Race Master Øyvind Stangnes served them some well deserved champagne. 

Finish 2016
