Kiteracing North Americans Day 1

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

Brian Kender flying over the courseThe first day of the North American Kiteboard Racing Championship at St. Francis Yacht Club had the 75 kiters split into two fleets to begin the qualifying stage of the event. Riccardo Andrea Leccese (ITA) and Johnny Heineken (USA) started fast by winning all four races in their respective fleets. In 4th is Adam Koch (USA) as the top Master, in 15th is Alex Aguera (USA) as the top Grand Master, and in 28th is Erika Heineken (USA) as the top woman.

Seventy Four registered racers start off day one in two fleets, yellow and blue with ten racers being women. The overcast day didn't dampen anyone's spirits as all the racers jockey for setting expectations for the rest of the week. The top three in the yellow fleet came down to Johnny Heineken, Adam Koch, and Brian Kender. The top three in the blue fleet came down to Riccardo Leccese, Bryan Lake, and Tomek Janiak. First and Second in each fleet were consistent with Johnny and Riccardo getting bullets in all heats and second place being tied between Koch and Lake. The top three women on day one are Erika Heineken, Catherine Dufour and Nuria Goma. As always check the official results for accuracy and protest updates.
