World Class Multi-Rotor Drone Racing

Multi-rotor drone racing is a new and exciting sport taking place all over the world and we are lucky enough to have a very active racing group locally who will host a race or exhibition depending on weather.  The best place to watch the racing and flying activities will be to the south dike rd. on the grassy levee.











 

Hydrofoil Ride with Kiteboarding Kites In The Bay

Hydrofoiling Race will be held at the old wind surfing launch off of skyline dr. (the Levee). This is about 1 mile north on Skyline drive. Spectators will be able to view the riders from anywhere on the levee within the first mile from the dike. This area is where all of the recreational kites will be setup. The hydrofoil race will need to be held out in the water a good distance to get a good water depth for competitors. All kiteboarders with a hydrofoil are welcome to race.

Please add Hydrofoil race registration is $25 for early registration or $35 the day of the event.  Early registration is here: http://www.americankiteboarding.com/proddetail.asp?prod=Hydrofoil_Race_Registration_June_25_2016
