Formula Kite European Championships Day 3

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

The weather conditions on the third day of the 2014 Formula Kite European Championships in Mielno/Poland didn't allow for any racing despite the race committee moving the marks around all day long. The wind speed stayed well below the required minimum of 6 knots.

Most of the competitors spent the day resting and taking care of their equipment. Some were sunbathing on the beach in front of the DUNE apartment building, while others were busy trimming their bars and polishing their boards.

Marek Rowiński, Polish rider and the author of the first Kitesurfing Rules of the Road, was also disappointed by the conditions today: „Today we were counting that the beautiful weather will result in the changing of the wind's direction from off-shore, due to the temperature difference between cold water and hot air, but, unluckily, it didn't happen. Tomorrow there is a chance for east wind, I hope, that as many races as possible will be run".

Racing will continue on Saturday with the Gold fleet scheduled to hit the water first when conditions allow.

Overall Standings after 6 races (men) and 5 races (women)

MEN:
1. Oliver Bridge (GBR, North) - 7 pts
2. Alejandro Climent (ESP, UC/Ozone) - 11 pts
