Collect 5 cards throughout the 4 mile course. Best hand wins!
This will be an individual event with a staggered start and is in no way a race. This is an event that anyone that can tack upwind can win! Participants will receive their first card on the beach and then leave the launch area to one of three boats marked with oTHErside skull flags in any order they choose, and receive a card. The card number and suit will be recorded on a waterproof sheet by each boat dealer before the rider moves on to the next boat. The 5th and final card will be given at the beach after the rider has safely landed.
Scoring: Best hand winds. Tying hands will be scored on the rest of cards in hand. Prizes for top 3 hands, points awarded for all participants. Top hand gets 10 points, second gets 7, third gets 5, all others that finish get 1 point. In the event of tie hand on top 3, appropriate place points will be awarded to both/all riders. One score card per rider. If a card is lost during play, that kiter is disqualified.
ALL RIDERS MUST COMPLETE A WAIVER BEFORE PARTICIPATION!
Due to the expenses incurred for a first-year kite event, registration will be non-refundable. Rain/No wind date is the following weekend, November 20/21. In the event that we are unable to have the contest at all, registration fees can be applied to a future event, or used as store credit.
