The event was held in front of the Millennium Resort & Spa & Laurel Eastman Kite School, right in the heart of Cabarete Bay.

Competitors battled against each other and the elements for prizes and bragging rights. We were so thankful to have the outcome that we had. Competitors came from all over the world just to be here; South Africa, France, Estonia, Canada, Ireland, United States and of course, the Dominican Republic. Lauren and the Kite Challenge organizers opened the fund raising Friday evening, one week before main event, with a silent auction, movie screening of F-One “Antandroy”, and raffles at the Carib Wind Center and Eze Bar in Cabarete. Then, closed the event on the evening of June 17th with another silent auction, more great raffles and award ceremony, at Club Ojo in Cabarete.

The usual high standard of the locals was on display!

This event would not have been possible without the support of our international and national sponsors.
