South/Middle American Championships Day 1

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

The sleepy Dutch Caribbean island of Bonaire wakes up to the adrenaline-rush of kite racing this week with the kick-off of the South & Middle American Championships. Thirty-four intrepid racers from around the world traveled to the tiny southern Caribbean island to test their mettle against each other in the near-perfect race conditions Bonaire has to offer.

Strong wind, pancake-flat water and a pod of passing dolphins greeted riders as they arrived for the start of the first day’s races. Men and women raced together, with the women getting a five-minute head start in each heat. Riccardo Leccese (ITA) dominated the four heats, with a first place finish every time. Day one of the racing concluded with Riccardo Leccese, Blazej Ogoz (POL) and Florian Gruber (GER) in the top three spots.

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

North American Champion John Heineken (USA)After four days of spectacular racing at Crissy Field, San Francisco, John Heineken (USA, Ozone/Mike'sLab) and sister Erika (USA, Ozone/MikesLab) have taken the North American continental titles. The podium was completed by Brian Lake (USA) and Riccardo Leccese (ITA) for the men, and Nuria Goma (ESP) and Catherine Dufour (CAN) in the womens fleet.

The final day of racing was split into the Silver, Gold, and Platinum fleets. The Silver fleet contained thirty seven racers vying for the Silver podium. Andrew Wong from Canada pulled out some stellar racing to take top of the podium for the Silver fleet. Nico Landauer of Uruguay gave a great battle for second with local Kevin Growney of San Francisco taking third. The battle was tight as Nico and Kevin tied for points and the person with the best score in the last race gets the tie breaker.
