Smile Now that the season is starting

Are there any plans to do the 2nd half of the 2008 Tampa Bay Kitemasters?

That is, the boarder cross or course race portion of it not the downwind part which was already done?

Or how about going out and just doing some course racing just for fuin? maybe wager a 6 pack of imported and winner takes all?

I think Jay wanted to do speed runs. I'm sure he will post soon on this.

The Tampa Bay KiteMasters SPEED RUNS will be held in St Petersburg this fall.
I am still deciding on the overall format.
There will be a limited number of spaces available (approx 25-30) as we only have 5 Garmin GPS's.
The location will be at the Skyway riding area and the conditions will need to be just right to make this work. 25-35 knots E to ENE and a mid to low tide.
I will keep y'all updated.
Thanks
Jay

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......
