This winter the iKite Club is organizing an exciting snowkiting race at Cook’s Bay in Keswick, Ontario.
THE EVENT WILL TAKE PLACE ON SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 25 (17-21 KTS WIND).
REGISTRATION FOR SNOWKITING RACE IS REQUIRED.
PLEASE, REGISTER AT THE SPOT OF THE EVENT.
A starting point will be located near Glenwoods Ave. Kiters of any level are welcome to participate. Do not be shy!
There will be 2 flags set up on each side of Cook’s bay to go around them. Kiters will split up into groups of 5-7 people. There will be time laps of 10 minutes between each group to avoid traffic and accidents. Advanced groups will have to complete 3 laps and beginners 2 laps around flags. The distance is 5 km per lap, which makes 15 km for advanced and 10 km for beginners.
We will award 1st, 2nd or 3rd place in advanced level and 1st, 2nd, 3rd place in beginner level races. Just remember everyone is a winner! The goal is to get 50 kiters to participate. It is going to be a lot of FUN!!!
Friends and family can also participate by cheering for the racers in a form of loud “Woohhooos” and “Go Go Gos”. A table with snacks and BBQ will be set up at the Strat/Finish point for everyone. This will be a great social event where you can make new friends and enjoy a beautiful day in the fresh air. A little non-profit fee of $10 will be used towards snacks, BBQ and trophies for winners. The first place winner will get a special gift from IKite Canada! Will also try to get local vendor for kite demo where you can try different kite brands before shopping for one.
Lets go snowkiting!
