DUNKERQUE KITESURF PRO 2009

1 AV 2


Day 2  - started at 09h00 with a skippers meeting, after an early breakfast.

The wind that was forecasted today arrived just after lunch. The planned course races were quickly substituted for freestyle, as it was now a good South West blowing an average of 15 knots.

The first heats kicked off around 1pm and saw Peter Tyushkevic (RUS,FLEXIFOIL) face the local Martin Debruyne (Triple-C). Peter started with a cool 313 followed by a smooth slim chance and held strong throughout his heat, leaving his opponent floating in the first round.

Vincent Tiger (FRA, F-ONE) matched up against Pierre Romain (FRA, NORTH) for the heat of the day in my opinion. Both looking quite good, but I think Vincent’s blind judge 3 took the round from Pierre and he progressed.

During the heat Vincent was flying downwind and everyone held their breath thinking he was going to cross over the competition area and into the “arrest” zone that the water police had demarcated. He pulled out last minute thank goodness!

 

The freestyle heats were stopped, as the wind had dropped off a little and the race director quickly shifted to course racing. The course was set out in a “banana” shape and the riders pumped their bigger kites and prepped their racing boards for the start. Riders had colored and numbered lycras to identify them, they had to also register their kite colors and brands to the beach marshal to prevent any confusion. The course was set out over about 6 minute laps and 2 laps were run for the first and only race for the day.

 

A great day on the KPWT DUNKERQUE KITESURF PRO!
