2016 Lancelin Ocean Classic: kites dominated the marathon | Photo: Carter

Olly Bridge was the fastest sailor of the 2016 Lancelin Ocean Classic. Kiteboarders have beaten windsurfers in the 25-kilometer marathon held in Western Australia.

The event founded by windsurfers in 1986 kicks off from Ledge Point and attracts hundreds of amateur and veteran wind addicts from all over the world. The 31st edition of the Lancelin Ocean Classic ignited an old rivalry between two board sports.

Both windsurfing and kiteboarding marathons ran simultaneously along the same stretch. Olly, one of the talented members of the Bridge family, was able to complete the adventure in 26 minutes and 8 seconds.
