Kite Boarding and Foils Worlds
I can't think of anyone who won't want to watch these regattas at the Townsville Sailing Club!
Kites Day One

  •  The Australian Formula Kite board championship from 28 August to 2nd September.  Competitors from all over Australia.
  • The third round of the World Gold Cup for Foiling Kite boards from 25th September to 2nd October 2nd.  I am amazed at how big this event will be. 60 to 80 competitors from all over Europe and the United States with strong contingents expected from France and San Francisco. Cameras on board official boats and on a small helicopter type drone above the course will live stream the racing over the Internet all around the world. The previous round of the gold cup a few months ago had over 80,000 viewers of this live stream. This is the final round so the world championship will be presented in Townsville. This also means that all the major players are coming for the competition. 

The opportunity to talk to the Worlds best and see how it is done.  Our youth members should take special interest as I predict they will be sailing foiling dinghies before too long.
If you want a close up view of these rockets, email jdblaw@ozemail.com.au for a place on a boat.  If you just want to talk to them onshore email jdblaw@ozemail.com.au as there are opportunities to be with them onshore.
Or even if you have no particular interest in these but just want to spend some time at the Club on or off the water and help out, then email jdblaw@ozemail.com.au
