Cindy Mosey Island Odyssey heads to Kingdom of Tonga
Monday 1 May 2007

The tropical island of Va’vau in the Kingdom of Tonga is confirmed as the gathering point for women kiteboarders seeking the adventure of a lifetime at the Cindy Mosey Island Odyssey.

Although few thought the first-ever odyssey held in remote Kadavu, Fiji, could be surpassed, organiser Cindy Mosey (NZ) has searched the Pacific Ocean to create a whole new experience for women kiteboarders and decided upon a destination alive with the song of whales.

“Tonga is such a special place to me. Having sailed its islands and kiteboarded there extensively over the past few years, I know it’s going to be an absolutely awesome event and I’m so excited about seeing everyone in beautiful Va’vau,” said Mosey.

The invitation is now open to amateur women kiteboarders from around the world to weave their own stories of adventure with a group of positive and dynamic women in an exciting new destination. Registrations are open and more information is available at www.cindymoseyislandodyssey.com <http://www.cindymoseyislandodyssey.com>.

Joining the amateur kiteboarders will be 12 professional riders, on hand to deliver encouraging coaching advice that will raise the ability of every one choosing to take part.

Participants will fly Tonga’s domestic carrier Peau Vavau and be accommodated aboard comfortable catamarans anchored in calm waters off Mounu Resort on Va’vau. The Va’vau group is a beautiful cluster of waterways and pristine, sparsely inhabited islets to the North of Tongatapu, Tonga’s main island.

Temperatures average 24C during the day and 20C at night. Water temperature is expected to be 26C.
