World Sailing prohibits two Kiteboarding events

IKA News:

World Sailing prohibits two Kiteboarding events


World Sailing has listed two International Federation of Kitesports Organisations (IFKO) events as Prohibited Events under the World Sailing Eligibility Code.
The 1st Junior Kitesports Freestyle World Cup (7-10 April) and the Kitefoil Silver Cup GP World Series (12-16 May) have been included on the Prohibited Events list following improper designation as a world event [Regulation 19.15(c)] and using an improper organizing authority [Regulation 19.15(d)].

World Sailing received no assurances that the 1st Junior Kitesports Freestyle World Cup and the Kitefoil Silver Cup GP World Sailing will be run under the appropriate rules or standards for kiteboarding and therefore have listed the events as prohibited.

World Sailing is recognised by the International Olympic Committee and SportAccord as the world governing body of sailing, which includes kiteboarding (on water). The IFKO's recent establishment and governance claims to kiteboarding does not alter World Sailing's responsibilities.

To date World Sailing have developed the racing rules for freestyle, wave and speed kiteboarding, secured the introduction of kiteboarding to the Youth Olympic Games, supported the creation of the World Kite Tour and promoted recognised world championships through the International Kiteboarding Association (IKA) and separate World Cup events in the freestyle, wave and slalom disciplines.

Part of World Sailing's responsibilities is to ensure that events take place within the structure of the rules and are run to appropriate standards for the event and protection of competitors.

World Sailing is committed to developing relationships with the IFKO to ensure the long term growth of the discipline.

"World scootering prohibits two skateboard events"

"World golf prohibits two cricket events"

"World rally prohibits two freestyle motorcross events"

World Sailing is all about money, their ethics are a joke.

Propaganda in kiteboarding - there is a first!

Honest title "World Sailing lists two events as prohibited."

Dishonest title "World Sailing prohibits two Kiteboarding events" - the events haven't event taken place yet.

The riders decide what they want, not the other way round.

I dont think anyone cares, of course some like watching the pros ride but these kooks who are running the contests need to get their shit together more noise than they are worth.

Toby, why do you post this? If IFKO wants to have a competition, fine. Why let some other organization say " this is not authorized "? Let world sailing send an email to their members, perhaps they care.

I post all the press releases. People should be informed about what's going on and can then express their opinion.

Why not?

Because you are just adding oil to the fire.
