Sardinia Grand Slam
From Oristano to Cagliari it’s a short step: Sardinia confirms itself as a queen of the World’s kitesurf by hosting also in 2022, the Formula Kite World Championships. Looking forward to the five-circle debut of the discipline at the 2024 Paris Olympic Games, the specialists of the new “Olympic sailing discipline” will fight for another World title in Sardinia, moving their foils to the Golfo degli Angeli’s waters.
Cagliari, the capital of Sardinia, is the designated city to host the World’s top competition, from October 8th to 16th, 2022 in the context of the Sardinia Grand Slam: last October, the iconic sailing event organized by GLEsport, had hosted the IKA KiteFoil World Series’ queen stage.
French Theo De Ramecourt and US’ Daniela Moroz will be called to defend the crowns won in 2021. Cagliari is ready to host over 150 athletes representing 40 Countries and 6 Continents.
The World Championships will be organized by the GLE Sport company. “We are very happy our event has been selected to host the Formula Kite World Championships in 2022” GLEsport President Gian Domenico Nieddu said. “In Sardinia we’ve been among the first to believe in this discipline, actually having a growing success among young people and about to make its debut at the Olympic level. We thank IKA, the International Kiteboarding Federation, and World Sailing, the International Sailing Federation as well as the Italian Sailing Federation for trusting in our organizational framework: we will do everything to fully respect the great expectations placed on our event”.
