Five weeks before the start of the first ever Sailing World Cup including the new events selected for the Olympic Games 2016 in Rio de Janeiro, the kiteboarding fleet is by far the biggest entry for the regatta, even outperforming the Laser class which usually provides the biggest fleet.
Up till now, 39 entries for the kiteboarding men event have been received. But not only in numbers, but also in nations spread the kiteboarding fleet is outstanding. 14 nations have signed up so far in the mens fleet, and 5 in the womens fleet, more than in any of the other classes.
More entries are expected in the remaining 4 weeks registration period, with the top sailors signing in after this years successful world championship in Cagliari, Italy a few weeks ago.
