The following information are intended to give guidance and lay out the general requirements for MNAs, clubs, cities and other organisations wishing to tender for hosting a major Formula Kite class event.

It is an outline specification of minimum requirements for both the sports competition and the on-shore facilities and sets out the rights and responsibilities for each party in hosting an event.

We strongly encourage bidders to contact the IKA office seeking any clarification on the requirements related to host such event.

IKA is supporting and encouraging event sustainability. The hosts would be expected to put forward a sustainability plan defining what initiatives will be delivered at the event.

There is no place for discrimination of any kind in the worldwide sport of sailing and an obligation of the event Organizing Authority is to act without discrimination. IKA and World Sailing will impose sanctions on everyone who breaches their obligations in this area.

  • All competitors at all sailing events shall be entitled to race with their country code letters / nationality flags on their equipment.
  • If country flags are to be displayed, anthems played, or national team clothing worn, this shall apply equally to all competitors from all nations.
  • The principle also applies to officials appointed to events. An Organizing Authority or host country MNA shall not seek to restrict such appointments on the grounds of race, nationality or any other discrimination.
