British CRX Kite Race Series Weekend #3

 
Weekend #3 of the British CR:X Kite Racing Series at Southend-On-Sea Hosted by Essex Kitesurfing Club was a cracker!

The action started on Saturday with a fantastic forecast, 20 riders registered so a full fleet was set to race TwinTip KiteCross.

High action took place with 16 races run giving every competitor a chance to race multiple times.

Guys and girls were racing on the 10m and 13m kites on a simplified course with a start/finish line, jumps on the way out, gybe round a pin and jumps on the way back.

The racing was fast, furious and a lot of fun.
