Australian Kitefoiling Championships Early Bird Price
As the largest annual southern hemisphere sailing regatta, we are pleased to be working with the organisers to include our National Titles in the program.
The Kite Foil racing will occur over a 5 day period (Friday to Tuesday) on a stand alone course. The first day of the regatta will include an opportunity to race in a new and exciting mixed gender 'relay' racing event. The relay event is set to test racers in a format that we may expect to see in Paris 2024 Olympic Games. The format has been tested over the last 6 months in International Kiteboarding Association events, and we're excited to introduce the format to Australia!
The remaining 4 days of the regatta will involve fleet racing for females and males in Junior, Open & Masters categories.
The Kitefoiling discipline of Kiteboarding is set to make it's debut appearance in the 2024 Paris Olympic Games and this event will host the best Kite Foil racers in Australia as they battle it out for the national title! Newcomers to racing are welcome and encouraged to register.
The format is Kite Foil meaning there are no restrictions on equipment. Racers will be given the opportunity to register equipment if they do so desire to enter the Formula Kite Division.
