The Festikite 2021 – European Formula Kite just closed on Sunday 12 September in Montpellier.

It was the first biggest event, attracting 91 men and 40 women from 29 countries and five continents. It was the first international event for the start to the Paris 2024 Games, the start of the Olympic program.
