Ron Kern Winner of the 2011 i-to-i
Posted On:  06/12/2011 11:39:30

The i to i, (Inlet to Inlet Distance Race), is a windsurfing long distance ocean race that runs from Fort Lauderdale's South Beach Park, around channel markers at Port Everglades Inlet and Hillsboro Inlet, and returns to South Beach Park.  This was the 9th year running of this exciting event.  There is no entry fee for the event to view or participate.  The 2011 i to i race was run December 3.

Lucky number 13 sailors, same as 2009's turnout; (2010 wasn't run because of conditions), 3 finishers of the complete course, conditions very challenging as the wind was a strong ENE 18-28 mph making for nearly 1 tack legs for many competitors, 24.2 miles on Ron's GPS from start to landing.  This year was the first year upwind/downwind kite racers showed up and there was much speculation on who would win.  Damage as usual this year with a mast breaking on the beach before the race and Van taking a big section of the nose out of his board when going over the front at the downwind mark. 

Thanks to the 2011 sponsor and supporter of the event!
