Kite-Racing Greece: Day 3

Pounda, Paros, Greece, September 11th, 2009.
Race director, Van Tol announced at the 10:00 am rider's meeting that he and his crew set an even longer course than the challenging one of yesterday. The riders had to race in the form of a zigzag, making this a very artistic, and stylish course. It would have been an amazing view to see all the colourful kites from the helicopter that hovered above the course this afternoon.
The wind was still pretty light as the first race of the day began, but the riders prepared themselves for the lighter wind conditions as they pumped their 12-14m kites. Bruno Sroka (FRA, Cabrinha) finished yet again in the number one position followed by fellow French native Julien Kerneur (Takoon). Kerneur is a rider that Sroka must keep an eye out for as he keeps creeping his way up the ranking list, finishing in the second position in the past three consecutive races. German rider Dirk Hanel (North) finished third in today's race.
It was an exciting day for Greek rider, Felicia Constandopoulou (BEST) who took the number one spot today on the women's ranking list. German competitor and women's leader Kristin Boese (Best), was disqualified due to a failure to execute the proper course direction. The remaining women competitors were unable to finish the race due to the extremely poor weather conditions.
Competitors, locals and all the event crew squeezed into little corners of the beach café as the rain fell explosively from the sky. The wind and rain did not want to cooperate for today's planned events and was finally called to a halt at 3:00 pm.
