KTA News:KTA to Support the Roof of the World Regatta

Written by KTA on . Posted in News

That’s right the KTA is heading for central Asia to join and support a very unique event in Tajikistan.

Roof_of_the_World_Regatta

More to come on this very soon so look out for the full news feature and announcement, but for now here is what the Roof of the World Regatta has to say about the event.

‘The ‘Roof of the World’ Regatta, to be held on Lake Karakul from 13th to 16th September 2014, will be the highest ever water sporting event in the world.

We invite participants to bring along any small craft and take part in this event. Kite-surfing, sailing, rowing, kayaking craft are all welcome.

Karakul (“Black Lake”) is a 52 km (32 mi) diameter lake in the Pamir Mountains in Tajikistan. It lies within the Tajik National Park. The lake lies at an altitude of 3,960 m (12,800 ft) above mean sea level. A peninsula projecting from the south shore and an island off the north shore divide the lake into two basins: a smaller, relatively shallow eastern one, between 13 to 19 m (43 to 62 ft) deep, and a larger western one, 221 to 230 m (725 to 750 ft) deep. It is endorheic (lacking a drainage outlet) and the water is brackish. There is a small village with the same name as the lake.

Karakul lies within a circular depression interpreted as a meteorite impact crater with a rim diameter of 52 km (32 mi). The impact event is estimated to have occurred about 25 million years ago. The Karakul impact structure remained unidentified until it was discovered through studies of imagery taken from space’.
