BVI Kite Jam 2010: Kristin Boese Leads Lineup
Kristin Boese takes a break from her KB4girls tour to compete in the BVI Kite Jam from February 27th - March 5th, which is being held in the British Virgin Islands.
TAMPA/LONDON/PERTH, Feb 23: Guinness World Record™ holder and 9 time world champion Kristin Boese is set to lead the lineup of stellar professional riders for Sir Richard Branson’s exclusive inaugural BVI Kite Jam 2010 at his idyllic Balinese style Necker Island paradise.
While Boese has been busy with the launch of “KB4girls”, a worldwide non-profit clinic tour for female kiteboarders, she will be taking some time off from her tour to be able to participate in this extraordinary event in the British Virgin Islands.
Boese said: “With our third and next 2010 KB4girls event set to take part on Maui/Hawaii on April 9th – 11th I will have enough time to get away for this very special event and while I sure enjoy our female only kite events I am very much looking forward to taking part in the first inaugural BVI Kite Jam and to kite in such a pristine location. The format of the event just shouts out FUN and I can not wait to be there!”
Other confirmed riders for the event include Andre Philip, Susi Mai, Tuva Jansen, Tom Court, Chris Burke, Gretta Kruesi and Madison Van Heurck. The BVI Kite Jam 2010 will include visual competitions, demonstrations and technique clinics in key locations throughout the British Virgin Islands. The Caribbean winds of BVI create excellent conditions for kite-boarding as the Tourist Board seeks to raise awareness of the islands as a top destination for the sport.
Set against stunning scenery and sparkling aquamarine waters, the Necker Island event will kick off with a VIP evening and fashion show at the Fat Virgin Cafe. Additional events, competitions, parties and meals for the Kite Jam participants will be hosted on Bitter End Yacht Club, Necker Island, Anegada and Sand Box. Necker Island is located in the north-eastern Caribbean archipelago of 60 tropical islands, islets and cays.
