Daniela Moroz (Lafayette, Fla.) emerged victorious at the 2021 Formula Kite European Championships that finished Sunday in Montpellier, France. The four-time World Champion sailed a stellar regatta and successfully navigated the new format of Formula Kite championship racing on the same waters where the sport of kiteboarding first originated in the mid-1990s.
Talented young sailors embraced the San Francisco Bay’s challenging conditions over three days of racing last weekend at West Marine US Open Sailing San Francisco. Sunday’s final showdown on San Francisco Bay featured another incredible display of speed and modern sailing technology with highly skilled and determined athletes representing four classes.
Today we’re at the @Harken Headquarters discussing technology and sailing equipment with Harken, @Siemens, @Nimbix, @TeamUSA, a handful of USST staff and athletes, and some of the industry’s top engineering minds. Follow along on Facebook / Instagram!
Hear from Moroz, Edegran, McKee, and Carpenter on how last week's Europeans results are a sign of hard work paying off and what it means for the larger group of kiters back home as the team prepares for the World Championships in Sardinia, Italy next month

There’s more progress to be made, but the fleet lineup for Paris 2024 is one step closer in the right direction. For the first time in history, the sport of sailing will take the world stage in 2024 as a 50/50 gender split event.
We had an awesome kite systems lesson with 3 top-notch USA kiters and @ussailing educators, and a sustainability walkthrough with @Surfrider_CA for local youth of San Francisco last Friday- read more on Facebook or Instagram!
