Day 2 – 2013 Kiteboard Racing World Championship


The skies of Bo’ao, Hainan, China have never looked so busy after two days of solid racing as 140 plus sailors from 45 countries compete at the Kiteboard Racing World Championships.

ISAF Sailors Of The Year nominees Erica & Johnny Heineken stamp their authority with an obvious speed and angle advantage. The remaining places are hard fought amongst the worlds best kite racers in testing conditions with solid winds over 20 knots for the last two days and set to continue for the remainder of the event.

Irish Sailor Jade O’Connor moved up the rankings of the ladies fleet today. She’s currently positioned 12th overall with an improving scoreline, posting a 10th and 7th in race 5 & 6 respectively.
