Registration opens for the 2016 Formula Kite World Championship

After the huge success of the 2015 Weifang Binhai Open, the event will now play host to the 2016 IKA Formula Kite World Championship.

After the evolution of the "70cm Raceboard Class" into a foiling high-performance class solely raced on registered production kites and hydrofoils, the 2016 World Championship will see the worlds best kiteracers battle for the title and their share of the 50000 EUR prize money one offer.

In addition, the top riders qualify directly for the Sailing World Cup Final in Melbourne later this year, an important milestone on the new hope for a possible inclusion in the 2020 Olympic Games.
