The decision to introduce foiling Formula kites for the 2024 Paris games, proved to be the right move forward, judging by the looks on the public faces on Cabarete beach this past weekend. People were amazed by the speeds, and airplane like boards flying above water.

For five consecutive days 21 sailors from 10 countries battled in winds ranging from 8 to 18 knots, in the famous wind and waves of Cabarete, in the Dominican Republic.

The qualifying races were held in open ocean with all the fleet racing together. For the last day sailors were divided to Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Women fleets and participated in short five minute races as close to shore as possible.

Kiters are starting to understand what an Olympic campaign really means as by the end of the 5th day of racing they were exhausted after completing 20 races run by CRO Francisco Jauregui from  Mexico.

Winner Toni Vodisek of Slovenia was very happy with his decision to come to Cabarete in these difficult traveling times, and is looking forward to the next event in Cabarete.
