KiteFoil World Series kicks off

Gizzeria, Italy: They’re back. After a long, forced, leap year, the KiteFoil World Series are back. The first event of the year kicks off tomorrow at Hang Loose Beach Club, a much loved spot for kiters around Europe.

The maximum number of entries was reached way before the deadline. 100 athletes from 26 nations will hit the water tomorrow for the first race scheduled for 12pm. Five windward-leeward races are scheduled for each day for the two fleets (split into blue and yellow). On Thursday and Friday, gold and silver fleets will be formed based on the results from the first two days of racing. The KiteFoil World Series is an open event. Men, Women, Youth (U19) and Masters (35+) will all race together from tomorrow until Sunday, July 11th when the 15,000 Euros prize pot will be shared among the top ten Women and Men.
