2014 Formula Kite Asian Championships Day 4


Spectators were able to enjoy a spectacular scene on the Qanat Quartier beach, The Pearl Qatar, yesterday afternoon. From 3pm, kites began to fly, transforming the sky into a rainbow of colours. With music flowing, beach games in action, and the addition of Kiteboard races, the scene was a splendid platform for sport activity.
