After 12 nights of a fierce battle on the water between F-One/Manera team rider Joey Pasquali and Ozone’s Johnny Heineken, Joey claimed the title and won the coveted Bluerush Thursday Night Race Series, hosted by San Francisco’s St Francis Yacht Club. Only after the final race of the final night was the winner decided by a difference of only 1 point!

Stoked on his win, Joey said, “It has been a great year for the 2015 Bluerush kite race series, hosted at St. Francis Yacht Club. It just shows how fast the sport is developing that 34 out of 36 season competitors switched to racing hydrofoils this year, with about 80 percent making the change to ram air kites as well. This made for very tight racing all season, and for me, it came down to a nail biting last race against Johnny Heineken to decide the season victory.  I managed to make it a third year consecutive victory, which is something I had only hoped for amidst such strong competitors.  I am already raring to go for next year for another hard core racing series!”
