2011 Kite Course Racing worlds to be held at Sylt, Germany

Postby Toby » Wed Oct 20, 2010 9:40 am

Kitesurf Tour Europe News:

The 2011 Kite Racing World Championships will be held on the well known German island of Sylt from June 28th – July 3rd, 2011.

“2010 was a successful test by having the European Racing Championships at this very spectacular location which perfectly fits the needs of our growing sport: Excellent wind statistics as well as great access for the spectators and the media – all this sums up to a great opportunity for holding the first Racing World Championship on this side of the Atlantic Ocean”, Markus Schwendtner, Executive Secretary of the responsible class association IKA said.

The location might be an advantage for 2010 event winner Bruno Sroka (France) who came only third behind Adam Koch and Damien LeRoy (both USA) in last years world championship held in Corpus Christi (USA). The price money purse Bruno and the other top racers from all around the world will compete for will be 15.000 €.

Also freestyle action will be added to this event as second discipline. The results will count towards the Kitesurf Tour Europe, a series which hosted more than 160 participants from 14 countries and attracted more than 166.000 spectators within five stages in 2010. The Kitesurf Tour Europe will determine the best European Kiteboarder in the thrilling discipline of freestyle. For more information please visit www.kitesurftour.eu

The sanctioning body IKA (International Kiteboarding Association) is an International Class Association of the International Sailing Federation (ISAF), the world governing body for any kind of sailing activities including kitebording. Its responsibility, amongst others, is to manage the global administration of the sport and combining world events into one united ranking.

Brand Guides is an Hamburg/Germany based agency specialized in lifestyle and extreme sports and founder of the German championship series, the Kitesurf Trophy (www.kitesurf-trophy.de) which is held with 49 events since 2002.

most likely to get the 2011 dates by February or so.

Looks like the first PKRA is again in Hua Hin Thailand in March.
