PKRA Tarifa 2008 Day 2 – Single Elimination

4 July 2008 | 8:01 am

The second day of the PKRA 2008 World Tour in Tarifa, Spain dubbed the Movistar Kite Pro 2008 was a sunny day typical in southern Spain. After the skippers meeting at 11:30 am, the first possible start was delayed for several minutes to allow time for the buoys to be set. The race director tried to start the first heat twice with both times being postponed due to insufficient wind speed. Finally around 1:15 pm, the wind filled in strong enough and stayed very consistent for the rest of the day blowing between 17 and 18 knots. The single elimination was concluded for both men and women and finished around 5:30 pm. After a half hour break and the awards ceremony at the beach, the event managed to complete four heats in the double eliminations which started at 6:10 pm. Kevin Langeree won the single elimination in the men’s division while Gisela Pulido managed to defend her singles crown in the women’s division – all in an exciting second day.

Race director Olaf Van Tol also noted, “The level of performance today is exceptional, no accidents, no collisions and very nice fair conditions – great performance from all the athletes.”
