With the longest running international competition in the history of both Windsurfing and Kiting less than one month away, the father ~ daughter team of William and Annie Tuthill from the USA is practicing as much as possible. Yep- you read it right- The World Ice and Snow Sailing [WISSA] Ice and Snow Sailing World Championships predates all waterborne kite races by a couple of decades! It is the longest running international competition in the sport of windsurfing, but the USA Team will be racing WINGS! Call it a cross between the two. Wings have the thrust of a windsurf rig combined with the lift of a kite. It takes the best from both.

Training on Lake Sunapee, in New Hampshire helps, but in the face of awesome competition coming from Sweden, Russia, Finland and others, the relatively small Team USA will face difficult odds. But there is hope. 18 year old Annie Tuthill has been scrappy enough on the Short Track Slalom course [a fast paced downwind slalom where fortunes are won and lost in an afternoon] to come out ahead of everyone. There is no telling how the chips will fall, but training will continue, and updates will follow.
