The competition in Togliatti is a unique combination of professional and amateur races and the legendary Zhiguli Sea Marathon. The Marathon is held according to the petal principle, this allows the sportsmen of any level to try their hand at the fight against the distance, wind and their selves. The distance is 45 km by general course. The most well-known sportsmen from Russia and other countries will compete for the titles of the best kiters in the framework of this World Cup. The masters of skis and snowboard will compete in such disciplines as Course-Race, Freestyle, Marathon and Slalom. There will be a separate division - Tube kite (Standart).
Among registered participants you can find such names as Dmitriy Nikulichev, Nikita Sokolov, Maria Bukreeva, Pavel Kolabin. All of them are stars of the contemporary sailing sport.
Right after the professional races, the amateur races of Zhiguli Sea Marathon will start. Kiters will take part in the races in the ski and snowboard classes as well as in the mass fun-races. At the same time some children races will be held on the specially developed distance. Year after year our children races bring up more and more participants. In 2019 the younger generation will come from such cities as Togliatti, Novosibirsk, Kolomna, Yaroslavl and many other regions of Russia to compete for the high titles. In the nearest future these very children may represent our country at the Olympics, given that starting from 2024 kite surfing is included in the program of Olympic Games!n
