KTA News:KTA TOUR 2013 SCHEDULE

Written by KTA on . Posted in News

Sorry all for the delay in putting out this coming seasons information to you, we have been hanging on to try and lock down some events that we hoped would be taking place before Christmas but unfortunately these have not come through for the moment.

Some rounds this season have it appears may have fallen victim to the politic storms that have been raised over kiteboardings inclusion in the Olympics, which has led out here to the Asian Sailing Federation voting to oppose kiteboarding to bring back windsurfing. For the KTA the effect has been that very positive event locations have delayed/backtracked a little, all wanting to see how things turn out in the November ISAF Conference vote – this means there will be no official events until after the final vote.

Not to worry though……..let’s leave those that do the politics to sort all that out, while we look forward to the events in planned for this season.

KTA Philippines January Boracay Island Asia tour – Freestyle & Race KTA Indonesia February Bintan Island Asia tour – Freestyle & Race KTA Thailand March Pranburi Asia tour – Freestyle & Race KTA China May Pingtan Airstyle Worlds & Asia Tour Race Manureva Cook Islands June Aitutaki Open – Freestyle & TT slalom/Race

Now that kiteboarding is an Olympic class all championships from continental level upwards are governed more directly by ISAF.  This means new requirements have to be met, one of which is a specified time slot in which each continent of the world can run championship events – for Asia the ‘Continental Window’ as it’s known is for October and November. As we have already held an Asian Course Race Championships in March this year, then our next opportunity will not be until Oct/Nov next year.

Plans are fully underway though and the aim is to not only hold the Asian Championships during October 2013 but also the World Championship during November. Exciting times ahead for Asia and the KTA, keep watching this space for more updates!
