Vilamoura will host the 2012 Iberian Kiteboarding Course Racing Championships from next Saturday, February 18.

The best performers from Portugal, which boasts Wave and Freestyle world champions Ines Correia and Gisela Pulido, will match forces with their Spanish colleagues in a wide range of disciplines which also include Open, Production and Twin Tip Board classes over the three-day event.
