Slag om Gent - 27 augustus 2011


Oostende voor Anker

Also this year we were present at OvA. This time we rowed the Tessa to Oostende from De Haan. It took us 3 hours on Friday against current and wind, and 1 hour and 10 minutes going back on Tuesday, with the current but against the wind.
It got us an 'Image of the week' in the local newspaper :)

Blankenberge Havenfeesten

From this season on we reserved a spot in the Blankenberge harbour. To celebrate this we got the Stella baptised by Neptune!

Zeewijding Wenduine

To start the season we had the Tessa blessed in Wenduine at the Zeewijding. Rowed solo from De Haan to Wenduine and back - luckily the weather was fine.

Whaleboat tests Torqeedo Travel 1003

On Thursday 29 April we tested the brandnew Torqeedo electric motor, the Travel 1003 on the Leie.
This is the newest product in their range and also the most powerful. It produces around 1000W, matching a 2/3 HP combustion engine in thrust.
The test resulted in following numbers:
Tessa - LOA: 6m, beam: 1,2m, weight: 280kg
max speed: 11, 5 km/h, with an 11 km range
cruising speed: 6,5 km/h, with a 23 km range
