Sroka and D'Ortoli lead at KPWT Tarifa

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

KPWT TarifaThe first day of the KPWT Movistar Kite Pro Tarifa started with a skippers meeting at 09h00.
The wind was definitely of Spanish origin taking it’s time to rise in the morning, but the draws for the Freestyle men and women were done regardless and the rules were clearly announced by the race director for all the riders.

A further skippers meeting was held at 14h30 and the race director instructed all riders to prepare for the course racing discipline.  The wind increased up to 12 knots and all riders launched their kites in anticipation for the first race of the event.

Race one saw over 45 riders take to the water. Each race included one lap around the strategically placed buoys. Abel Lago (SPA, RRD) started well and worked the conditions perfectly to push ahead of the pack and looked comfortable to win. Bruno Sroka (FRA, CABRINHA) thought otherwise and took the right channel at the perfect time flying past him in the home straight. Great start to the day setting the tone for the races to follow. He went on placed first in 3 of the 4 races for the day.

Fabienne D'ortoli (FRA, NAISH) placed well in all four races and is sitting nicely to further herself within this discipline. Kari Schibevaag (NOR, OZONE) pushed hard in the races and looks determined for the overall title within the next few days, so watch out for the women!

After race four the wind dropped off and the day ended due to light winds.
It was a good day overall and all are looking forward to day 2 on the KPWT Movistar Kite Pro Tarifa!
