The race will be a 25 k race set up as 7 heats of 25 kiters per heat. Ideally it should take 1 hour to 45 minutes per heat. Each heat will start in 15 or 20- 30 minute cycles (depending on Wind speeds) from the original start point.
During the final lap the last kilometre there will be a section where kiters will be required to free style 3 tricks during that last kilometre section it will be flagged off …so kiters will know when to start their freestyle moves.
1st 2nd and 3rd place kiters move to the finals.
There will be 21 kiters in the final round and the same freestyle scenario applies. Should kiters not perform 3 separate tricks in the Freestyle Zone they will be moved back one spot from their finished position.
These will be monitored by video and by judges situated in the in the freestyle zone.
The first wins 40% of the registration of all the kiters the second gets 20% and third gets 10%. A further 10% will be donated to a charity that will be drawn from the registration forms during the awards banquet Saturday night or Sunday afternoon. Depending on conditions
If there is absolutely no wind on the Saturday it will move to Sunday if there is absolutely no wind on Sunday the race itself will be cancelled and the Kiting registration fee of 140.00* will be refunded and we will simply enjoy a day on the lake with all of the festivities. We recommend that you bring wind meters and a full quiver to accommodate all wind conditions. As long as there is wind we will furl…We will do our utmost not to cancel the competition. If riders think that there is not enough wind to sail and others in their group of 25 do sail that individual’s registration fee will remain in the pot and they will forfeit their place and not be allowed to ride with another group. Riders for each group of 25 will be randomly selected the morning of the race.
