From 24th to 29th September, the beach of Torregrande will host the Formula Kite European Championship, in partnership with the IKA – International Kiteboarding Association.
The best international professional athletes from all over Europe will take part in the event to compete in the clear waters of Sardinia.
The used formula will be the “individual” one as well as the testing of the Relay, man/woman relay that will be used in Paris 2024 Olympic Games.
The IKA was formed to give an international platform to the skills and talents of competition kiteboarders throughout the world. Since 2008, the IKA has been developing competition formats and rules as a class association within World Sailing, with the ambition of securing kitesurfing an Olympics berth. Besides the potential Olympic kite racing format, several professional tours are sanctioned by the IKA.
The Formula Kite Class emerged from kiting’s course-board racing discipline, latterly embracing kite hydrofoil’s rapid, cutting-edge developments. By limiting the equipment, the class’ aim is to create a level playing field, ensuring the best athletes win. Formula Kite is the chosen equipment for several Regional Games like the Central American & Caribbean Games, the PanAmerican Games, and the World Beach Games.
