KITEBOARDER RUBEN LENTEN TAKES ON THE EXTREME 40 SAILING IN CARDIFF BAY



On 30
th August, Cardiff B
ay became host to the 5th act of the Extreme Sailing Series 2012 where kite-boarder Ruben Lenten took on the Red Bull Extreme 40 catamaran by displaying some incredible tricks alongside the boat during day 1 of the competitive sailing.
The crew of the Extreme 40 catamaran, Roman Hagara and Hans Peter Steinacher, both double Olympic gold medalists to their native Austria invited Ruben to ride with them during the Welsh stop of the Extreme Sailing Series 2012.


The Extreme 40 catamaran measures 20 meters by 13 meters and can reach speeds of up to 75km/h and for Ruben, it's all about getter higher, faster and more extreme giving the perfect blend of the two forces to give crowds an awe-inspiring display. The perfect end to an action packed day of events.

Ruben said, 'I'm always trying to build on my tricks and take the sport to the next level and it's been a dream of mine to kite next to something as extreme as this, it was absolutely unreal!'
With gusts of winds up to 46 km/h, it was Team Red Bull who took the lead on the first day of this four day competition. The Extreme 40 teams will be sailing in Cardiff Bay until Sunday 2nd September as part of Cardiff's largest Harbour Festival where then they move onto Act 6 in Trapani, Italy.
