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
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 Moorings 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.
