Lee Pasty Harvey News:3rd Pasty Cup - British Kiteracing Champs

Written by Lee Pasty Harvey on . Posted in Riders News

Picture The country’s fastest kitesurfers came to Marazion over the Whitsun Bank Holiday weekend 25th – 26th May 2013 to compete for The Pasty Cup, round 1 of the British Kitesurf Racing Championships. Organised by local kitesurf school Pasty Adventures & sponsored by the National Marine Aquarium, The Seiners Arms & Philps Pasties.

The forecast for glorious sunshine with no wind, kept all but the top riders away, however the weather gods were with us and the warmest day of the year so far provided a perfect sea breeze to allow 4 races on the Saturday with 4 races on Sunday making a total of 8 races meaning the competitors had 2 discards to give their final score. Alongside all the action on the water, spectators were able to have a go at kite flying on the beach and all the competitors were well fed with Philps pasties in the day & a BBQ in the evening

Winning the Race Fleet and regaining the Pasty Cup for a 2nd year was 2012 Youth World Champion, Olly Bridge with mum Women’s World No. 1, Steph Bridge in 2nd (both Exmouth) and Lee Harvey in 3rd (Hayle). In the Open fleet Oliver Laurence from Shoreham took top honours winning the Cornwall Tourism Trophy.

Sadly two days after the event we lost our friend and official cameraman Jacob Cockle.
We will never forget you Bro xxx

Big thanks to all the sponsors, supporters & volunteers. For 2014 we are looking to add Stand Up Paddle racing alongside Kitesurf Racing giving much more for spectators to be involved with.
