Despite the challenges caused by the world wide COVID-19 pandemic, the European Championships of the Formula Kite class featuring the Olympic Mixed Team Relay format have been confirmed to be held 15-20 September in Traunsee, Upper Austria.

PROFS Marketing GmbH and Segelclub Ebensee are fully committed to deliver a world class event in these difficult times. Both have long standing experience in the organization of top level events.

The best teams from all over Europe are expected to participate in what will be the first true test for the 2024 Olympic quadrennium. The event is open for teams from all over the world, however the ongoing travel limitations make it unlikely that a large number of non-European teams will be able to participate.

Registration, Notice of Race and further information here.

The event in the Olympic relay format follows the individual European Championships scheduled for 18-23 August in Puck, Poland.

The two 2020 World Championship events are planned to be held back to back on the resort island of Sardinia in October. Confirmation depends on the development of international travel.
