I raced with Anders the first time in May 1984 (the weekend the Herreys-trio won Eurovison Song Contest), and we have met, sailed and raced together in the -80, -90, -00 and -10s all over the world. He is a more talented windsurfer than myself, but we have a some things in common; nationality, almost same name, age and we share some interests. (speedwindsurfing, marketing, the ws-industry and our families). When we meet we have a lot of things to catch up with. It has happened that I gets e-mail that where intended for him... It is a pity that Anders Bringdal is not more into computers. I would love to follow a blog from him. Right now he is down in Luderitz, Namibia, Africa, (Luderitz Speed Challenge 2011) trying to brake the speed world record. I spoke with him after last years attempt and it was no walk in the park. Turbulent wind, whirlpools, a narrow and shallow canal, and a very short window of time every day. I admire that he is back this year. He has already broken the GPS record and is on top of the overallGPS-ranking. He has guts, and I do hope he manage! Go Anders go!
