Kiteboarding - 27. September 2019.

Tight racing in perfect conditions at Europeans leaves little to choose between top of order

In the 30-strong women’s fleet, racing separately in competition for the title, the battles were equally enthralling. But on the rhomboid windward-leeward track off Torregrande’s pristine beach, reigning Formula Kite world champion Daniela Moroz (USA) was untouchable, racking up five bullets from five.

The fight for the crumbs from Moroz’s table was intense and engrossing. In the end Britain’s Ellie Aldridge kept her nose in front with a clutch of high-placed finishes, though she was frustrated by too many crashes and mistakes.

Australia’s Breiana Whitehead moved up the order to third, courtesy of a second, third and two fourth-placed finishes despite t
he tricky conditions that kept her—like the other racers—continually guessing.





“It was really fun,” said Whitehead. “Very full on, and I’m quite tired. There was some really close racing, and we were all close together. It’s really great to have girls of so many different nationalities here. But the wind was gusty and shifty. It was difficult to make a plan, so I’m happy with my spot.”
