Championship Rules Updated

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

The championship rules for all disciplines have been updated for the 2012 season.

Changes include decisions made during the last IKA Annual General Meeting based on rider feedback and specialist working party consultations, adaptions of the newly introduced PKRA freestyle scoring system for competitions not using computer based scoring, and rules and regulations for the Wave Performance discipline.

One of the major changes is surely the freestyle scoring introduced by the PKRA for 2012. A slightly modified version will be used on the continental tours.

All championship rules with a full set of description of each individual topic can be found on this link

Course Racing Worlds Dates and Venue Change

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

Regrettably, the 2012 Course Racing World Championship will not take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, due to problems to get the necessary permissions for an event at that time of the year and thus a delay in event funding.

The 2012 course racing world championship will be held instead at:
Venue: Cagliari, Sardinia, Italy
Dates: October 2 - October 7, 2012
Organizer: Yacht Club Cagliari
Prizemoney: 15000 Euro

More details on the event itself, Notice of Race, travel and accomodation information will be published shortly.
The new dates and venue for the European Championship which was originally planned to be held in Cagliari will be also published shortly.

We are looking forward to host a great event in Italy, and thank the Yacht Club Cagliari, Federazione Italiana Vela and the Italian Kite Association for their support and the willingness to pull of this great event on short notice.
