An exciting day unfolded during the 3rd day of the Kite-Racing Brasil 2009 organized by the Gest-Group. Friday was full of surprises, starting off with the weather which has been very unpredictable, changing rapidly from a rainy morning to a bright, sunny mid-afternoon which gave way to two exhilarating races. The mandatory riders meeting was held at 10:00 am and the first race was held 10:30 am as scheduled and approximately 12 – 16 knots of onshore wind, which was quite lighter than the past two days.
Day 4 started with little wind, but started to pick up around 15h00. The race director made an official announcement at 16h00 to run the freestyle discipline and to finish the single elimination.
Wind had increased and was reaching 18 knots South West. The race director ran 7minute heats, with 3minute intermissions.
Low overcast clouds hovered the event area during the start of the second day of Kite-Racing Brasil 2009 organized by the Gest-Group, led by Eduardo Piloni. Rain cooled the day off early in the morning and lasted until about 10:00 am. The strengthening wind blew the clouds away and the skies started to clear before the riders meeting, which was held at exactly 11:00 am. By the start of the first race at 12:00 pm, the skies were totally blue and the wind had picked up strength to about 18 to 22 knots. The cheering spectators at the beach added to the day’s excitement and fun.
