Kite Racing: this is horse power

The 2011 Kite Racing World Championships will be held on the well known German island of Sylt from June 28th – July 3rd, 2011.

A prize money purse of 15000 Euro is up for grabs for the best kiteboard racers from all around the world then.

“2010 was a successful test by having the European Racing Championships at this very spectacular location which perfectly fits the needs of our growing sport: Excellent wind statistics as well as great access for the spectators and the media – all this sums up to a great opportunity for holding the first Racing World Championship on this side of the Atlantic Ocean”, Markus Schwendtner, IKA Executive Secretary said.

Freestyle action will be added to this event as second discipline. The results will count towards the Kitesurf Tour Europe, a series which hosted more than 160 participants from 14 countries and attracted more than 166.000 spectators within five stages in 2010.

The Kitesurf Tour Europe will determine the best European Kiteboarder in the thrilling discipline of freestyle.
