2009 SWS Kite Race Series:

2009 Champion: Stefano Rista

Well, the Wednesday evening series is over. We had a lot of bad luck with weather, only managing to run races on 4 of the 9 scheduled evenings, and only for those with large kites and good boards. But we did learn that racing is very possible, fun and exciting, with Squamish as a perfect venue. The interest level is high. Next year we will take the lessons learned, work out some kinks, and move the schedule for weekend daytime events to make full use of the excellent conditions normally afforded by the area.
Thanks to all the competitors. We appreciated your patience in this first trial year, and we'll see you on the race course next year!
