Leucate Kiteboarding Grand Slam - Day Six

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

With day six came the rain. Not very much happened, some riders waited around the event site, others stayed in the comfort of their accommodation in the knowledge that no wind was likely to materialize.



Friday is the very last chance to finish the competition before prize giving. Right now the forecast isn’t looking too great, but with only a little over an hour needed to finish the competition there’s still a chance it may happen. Lets hope for some wind on the final day !


For full results and heat-by-heat tricks and scores please see the complete freestyle elimination ladder at http://www.f-ridescoremobile.com/temp/f-ladder-ika-freestyle.html

Leucate Kiteboarding Grand Slam - Day Four and Five

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

Day four turned out to be a lay day.

2016mdv13

With very little chance for wind the riders had a late skippers meeting at ten o'clock after a long competition day yesterday. This gave many riders a chance to rest and check out the surrounding areas. Some riders rode at cable parks in the vicinity, whilst others had a more leisurely day perusing the golf course.

Statement regarding participation in World Sailing Prohibited Events

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

On the 21st of March, 2016 World Sailing announced that two IFKO events - namely the "1st Junior Kitesports Freestyle World Cup" and the "Kitefoil Silver Cup GP World Series" - have been added to the list of World Sailing Prohibited Events following improper designation as a world event or world championship [Regulation 19.15(c)].

World Sailing's full statement on the point can be found here: http://www.sailing.org/news/39518.php#.VwpEvZyLQUQ

Regarding the upcoming KiteFoil SilverCup in Villeneuve-Lès-Maguelone - after consultation with World Sailing - IKA is forced to confirm that riders competing at this event will not be able to register for the upcoming European and World Championships, and the IKA Kitefoil GoldCup events in 2016 due to participation in a World Sailing Prohibited Event and consequently losing their eligibility as required to compete in IKA World and Continental Chamoionships.

Similar action will have to be taken with regard to competitors participating in any other events with improper designation as a world event or world championship [World Sailing Regulation 19.15(c)].
