Farley still in the lead after day two of the Kite Racing Worlds

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

The race office mixed the fleets up a bit today keeping number 1 and 2 from each fleet and adding 3 and 4 from the other fleet. Racers were placed within their fleets moving down the line using a standard fleet formula taken from previous race series. This remix kept Sean Farley (#1 and #2) from yesterday paired against each other in the yellow fleet and Bruno and Sky paired up in the blue fleet. While Sean and chip stayed consistent with Sean taking 3 bullets and Chip taking 3 second place finishes, the blue fleet had a bit more changing of places going on. In blue fleets first race yesterday's top two fell to 4th and 5th and local boy, Johnny Heineken shocked the competition with a first place, followed by Michael Gebhardt (pending a protest) then Damien Leroy.

Heineken finished out the day with 2 third place finishes moving him into 4th place overall. Bruno returned to form in the second and third race taking two bullets and finishing the day in second. Sky finished out with a second and an eighth in the final, very light wind race dropping down to 5th overall.

Overall rankings after two days of competition (pending protests)
1. Sean Farley (5)
2. Bruno Sroka (10)
3. Chip Wasson (10)
4. John Heineken (16)
5. Sky Solbach (17)
6. Paolo Rista (18)
7. Damien Leroy (21)

9. Bjoern Rune Jensen (33)
10. Michael Gebhardt (34)

Notably Steff Bridge is the first woman and she stands in 14th overall.
