Kristin Boese shortlisted for the Rolex Sailor of the year award

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

Kristin Boese from Germany has been shortlisted as one out of four women to receive the Rolex Sailor of the year award for outstanding achievements.

Kristin has secured her mark in the sport's history by winning the Guinness World RecordsT for the most kite-boarding world championships attained by a woman athlete.

The certificate states: "The most kite surfing world championships won by a woman is nine and was achieved by Kristin Boese (Germany) between 2005 to 2008."

Boese is the owner of nine World Championship titles, with the ninth title in the wave discipline recently officially recognized.

Ralph Hannah, Records Manager at Guinness World Records comments:

"We are delighted to recognize Kristin's numerous kitesurfing world championships with a Guinness World RecordsT certificate for the most kitesurfing world championships won by a woman."

"Between 2005 and 2008 she has won an incredible nine world titles which are a combination of sanctioned events in wave, boardercross, slider and kicker, freestyle, course racing disciplines and overall titles. This also includes the 2005 PKRA Wave title, which despite being a single event we still considered the winner to be the world leader in wave riding at the time and have therefore recognized it as a world title, just as the male winner was considered the 2005 Wave world champion."

Boese showed an incredible variety of riding by winning these titles in five different disciplines,  2x freestyle, 2x wave, 2x course race, 1x slider & kicker, 1x Boarder-cross, and 1x Overall Title. This year she is first in the official International Kiteboarding Association (ISAF class) world ranking in course racing and also finished second in the one-off world championship event.
