The forecast had seemed promising, but once again the winds failed to appear today in Fehmarn. After another early start, the freestylers were kept on hold throughout the day. At 2pm the winds seemed to be slightly more consistent, so an attempt was made to commence with the slalom. Unfortunately it also had to be abandoned as the winds dropped suddenly.
There continued to be plenty of activity around the event site, with many visitors attending for the weekend. The top kiteboarding brands offered people a chance to view all of their new 2017 equipment.
We would like to present the Board Members of the WKL. These four members have been voted in by their fellow riders. Their role is to assist with important decision making regarding all aspects of the tour. The current board members are Youri Zoon, Bruna Kajiya, Alex Pastor and Liam Whaley.
Due to the unfortunate wind conditions that we have had throughout the event in Fehmarn, a meeting was held to discuss how to proceed in order to complete the event in the shortest amount of time possible. With a very reduced wind window for the final two days, it was eventually decided to run a more time-efficient ladder in order to complete the event.
The skipper’s meeting has been called for 6.30am, with a first possible start at 7.00am. The live stream will be running as soon as the heats commence.
