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.

Guys ..... The plan is to have a triangle course set up like the following video illustration.

Triangle Course

The start will have a countdown after all the kiters are in the water and will be similar to the illustration.

Starting Countdown

We are unsure of how much time in advance is needed but the final warning will be 1 minute before start.

This is how the start will work.

1. All kiters in heat will get into the water.

2. First blast from horn will signal 5 mins to start and the kiters in the heat can begin kiting and setting up position to start.

3. Second blast from horn will signal 1 min to start.

4. Third blast from horn will signal start of race.

If a kiter passes the start line before the official start they will not be disqualified but will have to go back around the starting line and cross again.
