I am really excited to announce that I won the 6th FORK Regatta, held here in Kingston, Ontario.
FORK is a regatta that my friends and I started 6 years ago as the first Canadian Kite Foil competition and has been hosted by the Kingston Yacht Club ever since. It has been a successful event drawing both American and Canadian competitors year after year.
This year, FORK was a ranked World Sailing event worth 50 points.
We had some amazing training with perfect conditions leading up to the event. Our coach, Dan Cunningham and a guest coach put on a solid clinic where I logged nearly 4 hours on the water each day. This was some of the most productive training I’ve ever had.
During the event I won 10 of 11 races completed. Racing mostly happened in 8-12 knots and on 21m kites.
I had 2 pretty exciting Port-tack starts on Saturday where I crossed the fleet clear ahead.
Overall, the skill level of the entire fleet has come up since FORK last year.
I will be training for the rest of the summer in Kingston leading up to our Worlds Qualifier which is the CORK Regatta at the end of August.
