Kiteboarding: fast and furious

Kiteboarding will make its debut at the 44th edition of the Trofeo SAR Princesa Sofia Mapfre for Olympic classes, as an invited class.


The kites will sail for the very first time in the most international regatta held in Spain, sharing the racing area in the bay of Palma de Mallorca with the Olympic classes, from 30th March to 6th April.

"The International Kiteboarding Association is more than happy to secure the inclusion in this important event, as it brings another excellent opportunity to prove how kiteboarding can be included in the major ISAF sailing events", reveals Markus Schwendtner, the Executive Secretary of IKA.

The kites will be based on the beach opposite the Trofeo SAR Princesa Sofia village, located at the Pabisa Beach Club.

Pabisa is a leisure centre located at Playa de Palma, between the two other venues of the Trofeo SAR Princesa Sofia and, like last year, it will be the regatta village, an excellent meeting point to follow the racing and venue of social events.
