1st – Kitefoil GoldCup Australia

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, but this was a fun one! I went into this event with the expectation of light air racing and the goal of holding onto my 3rd place in the Tour standings. Boy was I wrong! Townsville blew all week, and I was in the game from the beginning. I managed to win 10 of 19 races and had the event wrapped up before the last set. This moved me up to second place in the 2015 GoldCup season standings!

Big thanks to the event organizers, namely Marvin Baumeister, Robbie Dean, and the Townsville Sailing Club for running 5 seamless days of racing, and of course to my sponsors!
