I wonder why there are no official news coming from IKA?

Who is the organizer of this event?

RE: livestream, La Ventana has very poor internet which makes it impossible for them to livestream. Hopefully the phone company will turn on the fiber so we can all see next year's event!

Nico, Johnny, and Julien tied for 1st with 14 points and Maxime 1 point behind.

I REALLY wish they had a livestream.
It is the closest I've ever seen or heard of, amazing :D

Robbie Dean is PRO and they're doing a great job getting as many results out as they can on FB etc. The location looks like it's amazing sailing, but it's a village in Mexico and there's not a lot of internet.
Jeff Valet is doing an amazing job here: http://www.kitenews.fr/la-ventana-kitef ... -cup-2015/ I agree Townsville set the bar pretty high, better coverage than the majority of sailing events last year, but not all locations can allow for that.
The IKA has a weird relationship with the Foil Cup as it's taking away from their precious Formula class which is dying fast. Let's hope they leave foiling for development and stay out of it.

A great event. It has been stunning watching the foil kites in the compitition. The wind has been too light for any kiting except hydrofoil on most days so the race is the dominant feature on the water And only hydrofoils out there.

It came down to the last race with the top three racers all very close. Nico (spotz, ozone) held off Johnny Heineken (spotz, ozone) who was right behind him the whole race. Maxine Nocher (taaroa, F One) still took second place. A very exciting finish. The wind died aND that was it.

Three of the top four finishers were French. The 6th place was Axel, a 17 year old.

A very successful regatta.

Wow again, so close !

Have there ever been a race with that many races, 10, with such a tight finish ?

Nicolas 17 points
Maxime 17 points
John 18 points

Nicolas won because of better discard results :D
But in some rules, a tie is determined by most 1st places, 2nd places etc.

And here Nicolas and Maxime both got 3 firsts, but Maxime has 3 second places against Nicolas's 2, so Maxime would have won by these rules (not taking the qualifying into account).

And if it had been 10 races not including the qualifying points, John would have won :thumb:

VERY very tight, so depending on the rule set, all 3 could have been the winner with the given races :naughty:
