1st US National Kiteboard Racing Results

The Wells Fargo US Kiteboard Racing Championship was held at Crissy Field in San Francisco California on July 25, 26 and 27. The St. Francis Yacht Club acted as the organizing authority hosting the event in conjunction with Crissy Kite Days and the Big Air Wind Jam. Over 60 of the top professional kiteboarders from around the world came to test their skills against the experienced local racers.

Crissy Field is famous for its ability to consistently generate wind which it did for all three days of the racing. Days 1 and 2 were used as a qualifier to separate the riders into two fleets for the final day of racing on Friday July 27. The riders ran 20 races in 4 different course configurations. Each race had finishes ranging between 20 to 40 minutes and covering up to 12 miles per race in a combination of upwind and downwind sailing.
