2009 KPWT Canada at Shippagan 

The skippers meeting for the day began at 11h00 and all seemed hopeful to run some course racing in the afternoon. The wind looked to be increasing from today and into the rest of the competition. Over 25 international riders were registered to compete in the Course Racing discipline and all looked eager to get started.

There are many spots on offer around the Chiasson office and a bus for the riders was on standby in anticipation for the first race and where it will be.

The freestyle riders are looking excited with the forecast of great wind tomorrow as I am sure they want to put the conditions to the test and have some fun on the water!

Course Races are ready for a 3pm start near the lighthouse in front of the Chiasson Office. Buoys have been placed and the course outlined, ready to be tested by the riders.

The local TV channel is prepped to broadcast the races live and show the locals what KPWT has to offer.

Tonight’s dinner will be at the "Petit Mousse" and "Au Depart" will host the after party in Shippagan.
