Kent,

We will start working on the 2009 Tamp Bay Kite Masters starting in January. I think we need to start doing course racing for our event. It keeps everyone together and its great for the spectators. With our area we can have it in any location for any wind direction. I will make an official post come mid January.

I do not believe I will have the time (or energy) to organize any events this season due to the recent issues involving the birth of my daughter Rayley Orkins. She is expected to remain in the Neonatal ICU for at least 3 more months. The good news is that she is now up to 2 pounds 2 ounces (from 1lb 2 ounces) and is doing well.

It is possible that Chris Moore will take the reigns for me while I am out and help to carry on the TampaBay KiteMasters tradition.
Thanks
Jayson

Okay,

since the organizers are not going to do the speed course run for this year,
how about if we do one for just bragging rights and fun?

This saturday is forecast 25kts NE and tide is mid tide all morning @ skyway.

so if anybody is interested email me or post so we can find how many people want to participate.

The only problem is I don't have any gps forerunners just two handheld gps etrex , so they would have to go in a backpack or other type configuration???

I'm overwhelmed

How about just having a regular course race for fun on saturday, Anybody interested in that?

I'm sure I can scrounge up some old milk jugs and an anchor.

Otherwise I'm going surf kiting in CB instead......

I am just moving to the Miami area after living in Boston for the last year and a half and am looking to do some racing with you all.
I am expecting on being down in 10 days and will want to get right into it. Although I haven't done any kite racing before I do have a strong sailboat racing background and want to apply it. My only issue is my board situation right now but that should change shortly.
What is everyone riding? Anyone ridden the North Race LTD?
I look forward to meeting up and riding.
