“It was a very challenging day with perfect wind and 28 races to close the qualifying round” comments Mirco Babini President of the International Kiteboarding Federation IKA and President of CKWI (National Kiteboarding and Wingfoil Class). “From tomorrow Gold, Silver and Bronze for a great show live worldwide from Torre Grande with the technical commentary of the IKA staff and Tiger Tyson, young promise of world kiteboarding who is currently unable to compete.”
“Seeing the kitefoils of the world champions plying our waters is a priceless feeling,” says a delighted Eddy Piana, organiser of the OWC. “The World Championship that Torre Grande is hosting these days is just the beginning of a path that will take the Open Water Challenge to accompany the great sportsmen towards 2024.”
