Oliver Bridge Claims the Formula Kite Title in Abu Dhabi

The 2014 ISAF Sailing World Cup transformed the waters surrounding the beautiful Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates into the scene of an incredible water sports competition over the past few days. The ISAF Sailing World Cup hosted a Formula Kite challenged, which gathered the fastest kiteboarders today.

Oliver Bridge sailed to victory in the final and decisive race of the event. He was extremely fast and none of his rivals have been able to catch him. Maxime Nocher tried to chase Bridge, but had to settle with the second place in the end. He was followed by Florian Gruber on the third place of the podium.

At the end Oliver stated:” That was pretty intense. I managed to remain unbeaten in all of my heats and then I won the final, so I'm really happy. I've had good results all year. […] It's been pretty amazing in Abu Dhabi. We've had great conditions and great racing. Some of the days have been intense with short and fast races. It's been exciting.”
