PKRA Fuerteventura 2008 - Speed

PKRA SpeedThe international kitespeed elite race across the water with an acceleration which would leave a sports car standing. And all with no exhaust fumes or motor noise. The efficiency with which the sportsmen and women use the wind is formidable. Watch the action on Kiteworld.tv now!
Sotavento Beach is one of the historical spots of Speed Windsurfing, and has seen many competitions and records broken in the past decades.
The course on the mile-long beach is one of the most technical on the tour, varying from flat water to 2 metre waves.
The 2008 Fuerteventura Kitespeed Grand Slam came to an end with another two exciting races in conditions from 25-35 knots. It was again a hard fight between Sebastien Cattelan, Robert Douglas and Alex Caizergues.
Cattelan ended the event with two more bullets and clearly took the event win, but it was very close between the second and the third place. The better end was then for Robert Douglas, only one point ahead of Alex Caizergues, and also rewarded by a new American kitespeed record of 40.21 knots.
In the womens fleet both Sjoukje Bredenkamp and Charlotte Consorti took one victory, leaving Charlotte with a perfect score after 8 races. Katja Roose came in third.
World Cup initiator and organizer René Egli has just been awarded the Medal of Honor by Spanish government to thank him for the consecutive
build up of the windsurfing & kiteboarding infrastructure on the island of Fuerteventura. www.rene-egli.com
