Fast First Day for Hydrofoil Pro Tour

Boooom! The horn blasted through the ripping winds on the sunny San Francisco Bay today to start the 2018 Hydrofoil Pro Tour kite racing event hosted by the St. Francis Yacht Club. Fifty of the world’s fastest racers, hailing from 16 different countries, silently took to their foils as they crossed the starting line, their kites powering forward in winds gusting in the low to mid 20-knots. A flood tide smoothed the water for the racers as they flew around the course as if dancing above the water. Two laps around the windward/leeward course showcased the incredible speeds and skills of these racers as they negotiated choppy Bay boat traffic and winds gusting into the thirties as the afternoon progressed. Kites looped through the air as the riders rounded the weather mark and powered up for incredible downwind runs hitting speeds over forty knots. The hydrofoils silently sliced through the water, leaving almost no wake, and competition for the lead was neck and neck.

Wow - Nico five bullets, Johnny five runner ups, and then Guy almost five 3rd places - that is not often to see such consistency :thumb:

And from then, 4th place and down more mixed results.
