Best of 3 Event: Kiters, Sailors and Windsurfers


Being one of the longest running events in Europe, this year the Engadin Wind attracted more than 130 kiteboarders, windsurfers and sailors.

In the end, both the world famous 'Engadin Surfmarathon' and the "Best of 3" competition (a combination of Speed, Slalom and Course Racing) were dominated by the kiteboarding fleet.
15 year old Oliver Bridge (GBR, North) won the 35th edition of the "Engadinwind Surfmarathon" in 46 minutes and 27 seconds ahead of fellow kiteboarders Dirk Hanel (GER, North) and Martin Mike (SUI, North/Ozone). Best Windsurfer was Nicolas Warembourg (FRA, JP/NeilPryde) in 5th with 48:31 minutes, best Sailor on his Moth was Philip Käsermann (SUI, Mach2/KA) in 4th (47:14 minutes)

The "Best of 3" competition was also dominated by kiteboarders, with Dirk Hanel taking victory ahead over Patrik Diethelm (Italy) and 41-time windsurfing world champions Bjorn Dunkerbeck (SUI).
