Championship Series begins at St. Francis Kiteracing worlds

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

Friday saw another gorgeous day with clear blue skies and winds building out of the West Southwest. The Fleet had been split into two; gold and silver. Normally the fleet would be split down the middle with the top half going to gold and the bottom half going to silver. But what's an event without a little bit of drama and controversy? The six women in the competition wanted a chance to battle it out against each other. 2 of them (Steph Bridge and Kristin Boese) had earned their way into the Gold fleet finishing overall 17th and 24th respectively. When asked how to score the women, the bubbly yet Burly Brit, Bridge responded, "Score us with the blokes and let us improve. It's not fair to the men or the women to put the ones who didn't earn it into the Gold Fleet." When asked what it would take to get more women competing in the races Bridge responded, "More money I guess but I really don't care. I race against the men."

Preliminary Racing finished at Kiterace worlds in San Francisko

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

The third day of competition started out with mixed clouds and light but building winds. The race committee was motivated to get the fleets sorted into Gold and Silver by the end of day and they were confident they could get an on time start of 2:00. Jesse Richman fearing the wind may not come up much was out an hour before the competition testing out his kite with 40m lines seemingly reaching for the stratosphere for wind.

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.
