Competition update: European Racing Championships open for all equipment

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

The European Championships in Cagliari are open for Formula Kite equipment (including registered hydrofoils) and KiteFoil class equipment (unregistered foils, prototypes).

2016racingeuropeans

The event starts with registration on 16 May 2016, racing commences from 17 May to 22 May 2016.

Both classes will be run together but scored separately. There will be a European Champion in the Formula Kite class, and a European Champion in the KiteFoil class.

Due to the late publishment of the new class rules and the delay caused for registering hydrofoils for the class, this now allows ALL competitors to participate in the 2016 Kiteracing Championships.

The upcoming Formula Kite World Championship in China however will be open only for Formula Kite equipment (including registered hydrofoils).

The updated Notice of Race and registration form can be found at http://internationalkiteboarding.org/index.php/course-racing/events/upcoming-events/formula-kite-events/41-european-championships

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 !
