August 18, 2009: BARRA DO CUNHAÚ, BRAZIL - - The final racing event of Kite-Racing Brasil 2009 organized by the Gest Group led by Eduardo Piloni closed to a perfect day. Perfect weather dominated the whole scene and strong windy conditions started off earlier in the morning. Wind speed maxed at 26 knots onshore so the whole day saw the conclusion of the Freestyle double eliminations before lunchtime and the course racing in the afternoon.
The mandatory riders meeting for the race event happened at 1:00 pm and the first race hit the waters half an hour later. Two exciting races were completed even though the PKRA crew had a hard time maintaining the anchors which were drifting in the strong current but managed to pull-off a good show nevertheless.
“It was tough to get the races started again like yesterday but we managed to do it under like 16 to 26 knots of wind. We planned two more races for the day and we managed to do that. The last day was nice, a lot of people on the beach and the races were not too long compared to yesterday,” said Olaf Van Tol, PKRA race director.
