Race what you Ride – 2015

A brilliant day yesterday at the LKSC Race what your ride event! It was great to see the competitive spirit take to the water especially in the line up to start, with a range of different kites, sizes and board choices! We had a great view from the boat with some brilliant attempts to get off the start line first and some real close racing throughout the afternoon.

In round 1 we held three 2 lap races and a good judge that competitors enjoyed it was their eagerness to do a second round of three 1 lap races after an update on riders scores and positions. It was all to play for in round two where the wind picked up and the racing was even faster and more competitive.

By round two, the riders were really in the swing of the flag sequence, attacking the start line and even applying tactics to race efficiently and competitively around the course.
By the end of 6 races the results were totalled and there were some well earned podium finishes;

  • 1st – Rich De Silvo
  • 2nd – Christine Johnston
  • 3rd – Anuradha WJ

Other notable results were from Richard Morris just pipping Dan Charlish on equal points but more races completed, Ryan Flynn for a great set of results in round 2 and Dave Funnell for great enthusiasm and determination, especially in race 6!

And finally a HUGE THANK YOU
First of all to the COMPETITORS for making Race What You Ride such a fun and exciting event.
