Steph Bridge: she's fast

The United Kingdom Windsurfing Association (UKWA) and the British Kitesports Association (BKSA) have announced a groundbreaking partnership for 2014.

The UKWA will run kite racing competitions during three national windsurfing championship events. It's the first time these "rival" wind sports unite efforts at national level.

"The time has long gone for any hostility. We are a stronger voice together than we ever will be apart. Whilst windsurfing is safe for 2016 and 2020, it may well be that kiteboards will also get their chance in 2020 if extra medals can be achieved," says Bob Ingram, Chairman of the UKWA.
