August 15th-17th will be a weekend to remember at Shelter Island Yacht Club as they became the first east coast sailing institution to support the newest and most progressive form of sailing yet– Kitefoiling, which is the addition of a hydrofoil to a kiteboard.
What an incredible end to a great 4 days of racing in Puerto Rico. It was perfect racing conditions most riders on 9-meter kites. Steady wind about 15 to 20 knots and perfect blue skies. The man to beat was Jon “loverboy” Modica. Zack Marks up and comer was on fire today as he was pushing Jon and myself, at times he would be leading the pack!
