Brands are invited to register kites, boards and hydrofoils for the new Formula Kite class

FKAfter the decision of the last Annual General Meeting to evolve the Formula Kite class from 70cm raceboards into a foiling class, brands are now invited to register equipment, especially hydrofoils to be used in the upcoming continental and world championships.

While for kites (and 70cm boards) the same registration criteria as in the past apply (registration deadline: October 2016), hydrofoils will become eligible for competition immediately after registration (for already existing models) and new models have only a 4 week waiting period to ensure that the hydrofoils are available to everyone.

The Formula Kite class sets a strong focus on publically available equipment and does not allow prototypes, neither for kites, boards nor hydrofoils.

The next events will be the European Championships in Cagliari, Sardinia, Italy from 16 to 22 of May, and the World Championships in Weifang, China, from 9 to 15 of September.

The new Formula Kite class rules (foiling registered production equipment) will also be used in the Sailing World Cups in Weymouth and Melbourne, and the Sailing World Cup Final (date and location TBC).

Interested brands please contact the IKA office for more details on registration.
