Preliminary Racing finished at Kiterace worlds in San Francisko

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

The third day of competition started out with mixed clouds and light but building winds. The race committee was motivated to get the fleets sorted into Gold and Silver by the end of day and they were confident they could get an on time start of 2:00. Jesse Richman fearing the wind may not come up much was out an hour before the competition testing out his kite with 40m lines seemingly reaching for the stratosphere for wind.

Farley still in the lead after day two of the Kite Racing Worlds

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

The race office mixed the fleets up a bit today keeping number 1 and 2 from each fleet and adding 3 and 4 from the other fleet. Racers were placed within their fleets moving down the line using a standard fleet formula taken from previous race series. This remix kept Sean Farley (#1 and #2) from yesterday paired against each other in the yellow fleet and Bruno and Sky paired up in the blue fleet. While Sean and chip stayed consistent with Sean taking 3 bullets and Chip taking 3 second place finishes, the blue fleet had a bit more changing of places going on. In blue fleets first race yesterday's top two fell to 4th and 5th and local boy, Johnny Heineken shocked the competition with a first place, followed by Michael Gebhardt (pending a protest) then Damien Leroy.

2009 Kiteracing Worlds: Preliminary Day 1

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

Racing got off to an incredible start today with bright blue skies and steady wind in the 20 - 25 mph range. After the 12:00 PST riders meeting the course was set around 2:30 and racers hit the water at 3:00. The 67 entrants were split into two fleets; blue and yellow. Yellow ran first with a clean start marking the beginning of this 5 day event. North kiteboarding's Sky Solbach shot off to an early lead and never looked back. Cabrinha teammates and training partners from France, Bruno Sroka and Paolo Rista battled it out behind him finishing with Bruno is second and Paolo in third. San Francisco locals Rob kindt (Ozone kites) and Frank Wittke (F-1 Kites) rounded out the top 5 respectively. Notably Jesse Richman finished 3rd but due to not coming through the finish line correctly received a DNF for that race.
