2014 Formula Kite Asian Championships Day 1

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

The first internatonal Kiteboarding Championship to be held in Qatar got off to a great start yesterday, thanks to the arrival of some afternoon winds.

Kiters spent the morning preparing their equipment no the beach of Qanat Quartier, The Pearl Qatar, whilst waiting for the wind to pick up to the minimum requirement of 6 knots. At 10 am the first race for the mens fleet went into sequence as scheduled, but the wind dropped down under the margin soon again and races where postponed. Just after 3 pm, the wind arrived back and the riders all set out to the race course.

The Race committee made the most of the varying conditions and got two races for the mens fleet and one race for the womens fleet in, before the sun set and further races where postponed to tomorrow.

Steph Bridge (GBR, North) held the lead and finished first womens fleet ahead of Jade O’Connor (IRL, TMV/Ozone) and Elena Kalinina (RUS, UC/Elf), while her son Oliver Bridge (GBR, North) took first place in both races held for the men’s fleet. In second position after two races sits Riccardo Leccese (ITA, MikesLab/Ozone) ahead of Mario Calbucci (ITA, TMV/Elf).

Racing continues until Saturday 15 November with the Medal series scheduled to take place.

The first start for tomorrow is scheduled for 10am if conditions permit, lasting until the sun sets at 4.45pm.
