Sorry for the lack of information and short notice. KiteUS is holding its first official course race this weekend in East Tawas Michigan on Lake Huron.

The race committee (John, Tom S and Steve M) are staying at the Timberlane Resort, which is at the entrance to Tawas State Park, but I heard they are booked 100%. This is going to be a laid back casual race structure so we can get the feel for it. I will post details on a riders meeting in Tawas at Timeberlane very soon once I hammer out the details.

John

I have some experience on racing with sailboat.
You need to determine the racing area : what is the depth to check if it is going to be easy to anchor buoy.
how many buoy do you have ?
how many power boat, for starting and arrival procedure and safety ?
who is kiting with a timer and know the rules ? blink.gif
depending on that, we can work on a course
