National Kite Foil Series set for 2021
The National Kite Foil Series is set to debut for the first time in 2021. The 6 stop National Kite Foil Series will involve 5 State Championships and 1 National Championship (these events won't replace what already exists). Following each event there will be winners of each championships, however, following the end of the series - the National Kite Foil Series Champion will be awarded.
To win the National Kite Foil Series Championship, kiters will have their 4 best event scores contribute to the overall series leader board. There will be 100 points up for grabs at the State Champs and 200 points at the National Champs. The Series Champion will be awarded in both a male and female division, the title will recognise the fastest & most consistent kiteboarder in Australia through 2021.
Never raced before? Or only have freeride foiling gear? the National Kite Foil Series is a great place to start racing.
This years events will consist of a Formula X division, meaning you will be riding up against racers of a similar level & you will complete half the course of the A-Fleet. So if you're interested in getting a taste of racing, but only have free ride foiling gear, then this is for you.
The first stop will take place at Sail Melbourne between the 16th and 20th of January. Sail Melbourne is an international regatta which invites a number of different sailing classes to the event. An excellent venue which consists of a great launching, landing & viewing area off Brighton Beach.
The next stop of the series will move to Western Australia for their State Championships, this event will be based out of Jervois Bay Sailing Club. Western Australia is well renowned for its amazing kiteboarding conditions, that is why we are very excited for the event to take place on the Perth Waters. With consistent sea breezes, this will be a fantastic event. Following on from WA there are planned state events in NSW, QLD & SA. We will keep you updated as to when the NOR and registrations become available.
The series will wrap up with the National Titles in Western Australia at Jervois Bay Sailing Club, this event will have 200 points awarded to the winner.
