Full Version: Hatteras Group Trip, April 2009

I wanted to get everyone's thoughts on planning a huge KiteUS Great Lakes trip to the Hatteras in April of 2009.

I have had some discussions with Chris Moore from Kitty Hawk and they have a new complex with lodging on site. Chris also expressed interest in having a KiteUS Course Race at their location every month.

How cool would that be to set up a week of Course Racing to start the 2009 season when we are in town! I know everyone goes to Hatteras in the spring, but all at different times.

If we do this right we can even do buses down to NC and group housing.

Thoughts, ideas?

Shops, any chance combining your trips to include everyone from the Great Lakes?

I always stay with the windsurfers, the BONCs and the COWs in the Wind over Waves development in Salvo. I do want to spend two weeks here (I am here in Salvo right now) next Spring. The exact date for that trip is not set, yet, but the organizers of this trip are going to visit the realty office tonight and set a date. Hopefully, it will be a good date that will mesh with what you are planning. I was thinking of renting one of the houses down here for a second week.

These houses are right next to the Real Slick. You can see the Slick island in the top right corner of the airial view, and a patch of the slick between the row of brown houses and the blue one in one of the photo attachments. I just took those photos from the deck of the house I am staying in. There are about 10 houses in the development that are good for what you are suggesting.

If you haven't seen it, yet, here's the video I took of the area from my RC airplane:

OK, the windsurfers are planning the trip from Apr 15-25.

Let me know if you need me to scout out the location around Kitty Hawk Kites, but I prefer the Salvo location because of its proximity to the Slick.

4/22/09 to 4/29/09 is the very early target dates give or take a couple on each end.

I need to talk with Chris at Kitty Hawk to see if we can coordinate a KiteUS 09 Race I at their new location in Waves. He has contacts with lodging so I will see what he can get us in the way of houses near their location.

More details to follow!

Those seem like odd dates. Starting and ending on a wednsday? I thought most of the houses in the outer banks rent from Saturday to Saturday.
