Kiteboarding: the Course Racing style

The inaugural Kiteracing Oceanic Championships will be sailed in Leighton Beach, Western Australia, between 10th-15th December.


The new annual Course Racing event is run by the International Kiteboarding Association (IKA) and International Sailing Federation (ISAF).

There will be kite racers from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, America, Great Britain, Brazil, Spain, Germany, Poland, and more, competing at the Kiteracing Oceanic Championships.

"Western Australia has a rich sailing history. WA's ideal weather conditions and peerless beaches have long attracted sailing enthusiasts with the Fremantle Doctor making it the perfect location for wind-driven sports", says John Longley, a passionate Perth sailor.

The event will be complemented by a festival featuring family entertainment, live music, street performers, kiting clinics and beach sports.
