- 17 February 2009 | Kiteboarding
The wind forecast is looking reasonable for Saturday and a chance on Sunday. Milang tends to pop up for a mid afternoon blow so hopefully it kicks in early.
The main Comp Zone will be set up off the northern side of the sand spit (flat water area) with the kicker and slider off to the side. There’ll also be the Downwind race and Slalom course area on the eastern edge of the spit.
A BBQ lunch will be available from the Milang Regatta Club in the early afternoon each day for Competitors and public alike. Competitors will receive lunch included both days.
The proposed format for the weekend will be:
Saturday 21st of Feb
1pm: Competitor Briefing
1.30pm: Division Heats commence
4pm: Individual Expression Session- Competitors bust their largest moves glamour style: 1 person after another.
5pm: Division Finals
6pm: Downwind race
7pm onwards: Dinner and drinks at the Regatta Club
Sunday 22nd of Feb
Morning: Breakfast at the Regatta Club
12pm: Free ride slider and kicker
1pm: Slider and Kicker Comp
2pm: Pt Sturt Downwinder including Slalom Course
Naturally we’re hoping for some decent breeze and if it looks like coming in later in the day, we’ll host the Division Comps and Finals as a priority; just be ready to hit the water by 1pm on Saturday.
We’re looking for a great turn out this year. Even if you aren’t competing, come along and give some support to the kitesurfers and local communities.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
