Gruber and Imbert in the lead after two days of Qualifying Series in Sail Melbourne

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

With the ability to sail in virtually all conditions, the Kiteboarders have been making the most of their preliminary rounds at Sail Melbourne over the last two days. In both the Men’s and Women’s events, strong leaders have emerged with a string of first places to their name.

Florian Gruber of Germany has six wins from six races leading in to Wednesday, two points clear of Torrin Bright in second place and eight points clear of Matthew Taggart in third. Florian commented earlier, “I’m really happy to have the six wins from six races. It’s perfect for me. Going in to the Gold fleet it makes me happy and they all want to beat me. It will be harder, but I want to fight and so I am really motivated.”
