As part of the action there will be a Freestyle competition during the week, with the finals taking place on Saturday 14 December. Also on the Saturday catch the spectacular Lighthouse to Leighton, where competitors will race the 19km of Indian Ocean between Rottnest Island and Leighton Beach for the fourth successive year.

 

The Kiteracing Oceanic Championships consists of a series of qualifying races around a marked course. Results from this event will go towards a 12-month rolling world ranking calendar in the IKA World Course Racing Championship. The finals of the course racing and the trophy presentation will be held on Sunday 15th December.

A whirlwind of free extra curricular activities will happen back on shore including the Oceanics Bar, Sunset Food Market, Open Air Cinema (screening surf documentary One Touch, starring Joel Parkinson and Wes Berg), free family entertainment, roving performers, beach sports, tasty pop-up food outlets and more. Live music including The Brow Horn Ochestra, Sam Perry, DJ NDORSE and DJ Charlie Bucket will make for the beach party of the year on Saturday 14 December .
