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,”
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
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.
