2016 Equipment Evaluations - Kiteboarders on day 8

'2016 Equipment Evaluations'    ISAF ©

The Equipment Evaluations for the 2016 Olympic Sailing Competition is taking place in Santander, Spain from 17-25 March. The panel in Santander were today able to present their initial conclusions to eighteen sailors from ten nations and four continents.

Day four here in Santander looked like a lay day which gave the ISAF evaluation panel for the kiteboarding format trials the opportunity to present their first conclusions to the 18 sailors from 10 nations and four continents.

An equipment presentation then took place in the boat park before the evaluation panel hit the meeting rooms for further discussions and fine tuning of course options.

Around 14:00 a 6-7 knot seabreeze filled in which allowed the kiters to head out to the course area and race the multihulls and skiffs. They took also the opportunity to have a chat on the water with ISAF resident Goran Petersson and Vice President Teresa Lara and explain equipment and tactics on the water.

2011 slalom world champion Damien Leroy and 2011 course racing world champion Johnny Heineken spent over an hour to explain our sport to Goran and Teresa.

Today was also a showcase of high performance – the skiff and multihull evaluation panel confirmed wind readings of 6-8 knots max and the kiteboards hit the courses with the other boats with more than 25 knots boatspeed and amazing upwind angles.

The ISAF kiteboarding trials will conclude today with the simulation of all course options for a full event setup. This will be a box course for the opening series, a box slalom course for the final series, and a short track course with a reaching start for the medal race series.

The ISAF evaluation panel will then prepare their report to the for the Mid-Year meeting in Stresa, Italy, beginning of May 2012.
