Kite foiling sees riders ‘fly’ above the water on hydrofoils attached to boards and powered by huge kites. They can reach incredible speeds of up to 45 knots (51mph). Here's everything you need to know...
The event is the first international Formula Kite regatta to be hosted in the UK since the exciting new discipline was added to the Olympic roster for Paris 2024.
Taking place less than a year out from the Games, the European Championships are a vital regatta in the Paris 2024 cycle and will determine which nations and athletes get a spot at the Olympics.
As well showcasing world class racing in this high-octane new Olympic discipline, the RYA and its partners are focused on promoting environmental responsibility through the event, as well as inspiring local communities around the marine environment and water-based opportunities.
