Reminder: Register for Sail Melbourne to secure important qualification points for the 2013 Worlds

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

Sail Melbourne is just 6 weeks away - the first ISAF Sailing World Cup which includes kiteboarding.

The ISAF world rankings consider every riders top 6 results in the past 12 months - and the four Sailing World Cups (Melbourne, Miami, Palma, Hyeres) are the highest scoring events, with 200 points for the winner each.

Registration for Sail Melbourne can be done here: http://eventoffice.com/sm/team_product_selection.asp
