6th European Junior Kitesurfing Cup

The sixth European Junior Kitesurfing Cup is being held from the 13th - 16th May in the town of Saint Pierre-la-Mer, France. The spot has been the chosen venue for the competition since 2003 and this year looks set to be the best yet with 50 of the best young kitesurfers from seven European countries around the world doing battle for the championship in the freestyle competition. The age range will be from ten years up to 19 years old and will see each competitor perform their best tricks in their age group before the international judges, to win one of the many prizes and to take home part of the 3000 Euros prize money up for grabs.
Parallel to the freestyle kitesurfing competition there will be a long distance cata-kite race, the first one of its kind in the Languedoc Roussillon. Cata-kite is a spin-off from kitesurfing and allows people to have a go at a traction watersport on the back of a catamaran. The new sport involves a catamaran that is pulled along by a kite which is attached to a boat. Working in both light and strong winds the kite enables the catamaran to go faster than with a traditional sail and can create incredible acceleration.
Kitesurfing schools and clubs who wish to participate in this cata-kite race can sign up or contact the Saint Pierre kitesurfing school via the website www.snkite.com or www.communefleury.fr
During the event the public will be able to enjoy and participate in free watersport activities including kiting, waterskiing, power kiting, wakeboarding and a cata-kite introduction lesson as well as evening gatherings and parties to cap things of for the day.
