The British Federation of Sand & Land Yacht Clubs (a full member of FISLY)
state kite powered landboards to be officially part of class 7
The French have an own class for kite powered landboards and allow them to race at national competitions of classes 7 and 8
As FISLY wants to renew itself in the next few years (attract more young members, combine land and ice sailing),
elaborating on class 7 specifications seems to be a good start.
Stand-up land sailing is the most sportive and least expensive one, the ideal entry level for young individuals.
Why not define three subclasses in class 7 (or just state them all to be part of it officially), like the World Ice and Snow Sailing Association (WISSA) does?
This would cover all stand-up land-sailing as known as of today.
- Joint Sail Subclass: The sail is attached via a joint to the landboard (Windsurfing rig, etc.)
- Free Sail Subclass: The sail is held in the hands and not attached mechanically to the landboard (Kitewing, Skatesail, etc.)
- Kite Subclass: Landboard powered by a kite
