Talisker Atlantic Challenge World Record

Mark Slats and Kai Wiedmer are the winners of the Talisker Atlantic rowing race 2020-2021.

They rowed with a Koopmans designed DOR12

First boat all classes

World record pairs

 

Together with John Schouten I also did the routing during the race.

Better sheeting position on JAGER

 

Although Jager was fast last year, to stay ahead I tried this new sheeting position. It works well. Speed increases and heel decreases.
