Over the past few months Markus Schwendtner of the International Kiteboarding Association (IKA) and Robbie Dean of the
American Kiteboarding Association (AKA) and St. Francis Yacht Club (StFYC) have analyzed the data from Sailing World Cup
events and from our own kiteboarding fleet racing events.
Noting the successes and shortcomings of our past testing as well as feedback from our sailors, there will be an
introduction of an experience-based format and scoring system at the upcoming IKA major events, starting with the North
American Championship being hosted by St Francis Yacht Club, June 3-7, 2013, followed by the South- and Middle American
Championship held in Bonaire, June 11-15, 2013, and the European Championship at Hang Loose Beach Italy, July 23-28,2013.
