Olly and Steph Bridge take out the 2017 Red Bull Lighthouse to Leighton race

Mother and son kiteboarders Olly and Steph Bridge won the eighth edition of the Red Bull Lighthouse to Leighton race in Fremantle, Western Australia – a repeat performance of the 2014 race. In 17kn winds and clear skies, Olly was ahead of the pack for most of the race, sailing seamlessly on the open ocean from Rottnest Island to Leighton Beach Fremantle in 19 minutes 34 seconds, 42 seconds ahead of second placewinner Theo De Ramecourt from France. This was Olly’s second Lighthouse to Leighton win (he won in 2014) and his fifth attempt at the race. The 20-year-old competed in 2015 and 2016 but had mishaps in each of those years so it was a case of third time lucky. “I didn’t have any crashes this year, I was in front from the start line and managed to get away from the other guys early,” Olly said. The race was delayed for about an hour while the wind picked up. “At the start there wasn’t enough wind, only the guys with the hydrofoils could have raced. But thanks to the delay there was enough wind for everybody to ride. It was a good decision.” Olly’s mum Steph Bridge won …

In just a few hours the weather went from sunny and windy, to cloudy with no wind at all, until it finally picked up again.

I managed to take lead, but then my steering line broke during my final lap, and I fell behind again, and had to tie a knot and use my lines in the best way.
