Windy's Developer won the Toughest Snowkiting Race in the World!
Update: The team Navrhuji snist psy, with our developer Jan Simek, won Vake 2019 race! Swiss/German team Windy Alpboys took the second place. Congratulations guys for this great victory! 🎉 👏
Vake is the toughest long distance snowkiting race in the World.
Our programmer Jan Simek took part of it in a team Navrhuji snist psy and they aspire to lead. Last year they almost won the race, but since they made a mistake at the end, they finished 3rd.
Jan Simek, father of two small children, is expert on Kubernetes and CI/CD stuff. His teammate Mira founded a company that builds electric hydrofoils in Czech.
But not only that. Windy sponsor another Swiss/German team Windy Alpboys, that won last two years. They seem to be unbeatable.
Anyway we keep our fingers crossed.
