2022 Formula Kite World Championships in Cagliari – Day 2

Formula Kite World Championships

Thunderstorms and rain stop play, and not enough wind for racing when sun came out on day 2

Daniela Moroz (USA) and Lauriane Nolot (FRA) lead the women’s qualifying fleets

Axel Mazella (FRA), Toni Vodisek (SLO) and Max Maeder (SGP) are top of the three men’s groups

Olympic medallists and round-the-world racers coaching the kite fleet



Thunder, lightning, rain and a lack of wind all conspired against any racing being able to take place on day two of the 2022 Formula Kite World Championships in Cagliari, Sardinia.

Instead, the 150 riders from 44 countries will have to play out the end of the qualifying phase of the competition on Thursday when the sun and wind are forecast to be much more kite-friendly

No day at a world championship should ever be wasted, and for the coaches there are still opportunities to make gains with their athletes even on a no-race day. There are some significant names from other parts of the sport in Cagliari looking to help the kiteboarders get up to speed with the rigours of Olympic campaigning. Among the many experts working shoreside and in the coach boats are (in no particular order):

  • Stevie Morrison (GBR), double 49er Olympian and former 49er World Champion
  • Robbie Naismith (NZL), America’s Cup and Whitbread Race winner
  • John Bertrand (USA), Finn Olympic silver medallist
  • Charlie McKee (USA), 470 and 49er double Olympic medallist
  • Iker Martinez (ESP), 49er Olympic gold medallist and world champion, Volvo Ocean Race skipper
  • Joe Glanfield (GBR), double 470 Olympic silver medallist
  • Caleb Paine (USA), Finn Olympic bronze medallist.
