Britain's best kitesurfers will be making their way to Kent this summer as it once again plays host to the final leg of the Nationals Kitesurfing Championships.
Organisers are predicting huge crowds will be drawn to Ramsgate Main Sands on Saturday, August 24 and Sunday 25.
About 70 competitors from all over the country will be taking to the water to compete for the title of National Freestyle Kitesurfing Champion.
Ramsgate town council initiative Active Ramsgate will be hosting the event, and will be putting on other activities such as music.
There will be more than just spectating opportunities on offer, as free kitesurfing taster sessions will be on offer, as well as demonstrations and trials on the water, and a variety of stalls.
Dr Cheryl Mvula, project manager of Active Ramsgate, said: "Last year was such a successful event, not only were there lots of people on the beach watching fantastic performances from the kitesurfers, but many tried out the sport for themselves for the first time.
"We even had some local winners, and all in all, it really secured Ramsgate as one of the UK's leading kitesurfing destinations.
"So we're thrilled to be hosting the championships again this year, and making the event even bigger than before.
"There will be plenty of stalls along the sands, and we're teaming up with various local businesses to make this an event which the whole town can get involved."
