There are new rules regarding min depth of water for record attempt.

ďFor every record attempt on a WSSRC approved course, there must be a minimum depth of water, which is defined as follows.
At the time of the run in question, the shallowest part of the course must be covered by water with a depth of at least half the static immersed beam of the craft involved, or 10cm, whichever is the greater. (Guidance note) To define the depth requirement, the craft or board involved should be afloat and the widest part of the hull or hulls touching the water should be measured. In the case of a multihull, the widest hull is measured or hydrofoil if fitted. In the case of an event involving a number of competing craft, the WSSRC Observer can announce at the commencement of the event what the minimum depth requirement will be.Ē

I donít now how they will define the depth requirement for kite since I donít think that kite board floats, at least not with kiteboarder on it.
