The WSPF Foundation continues to assist in the sustainability of the FKSS Facebook Twitter Google+ Pinterest WhatsApp Photo ©Toni Forqués The WSPF Foundation generates activations at all five stops of the FKSS 2020. This year is coming to an end, a year that most of us will never forget because of the very atypical socio-health conditions we have had to endure. This year also marks the end of one of the most exciting and spectacular seasons of the Formula Kite Spain Series (FKSS) since this adventure began in 2018. This season has been full of novelties, beginning with the introduction of a new modality, known as Wingfoil, and the appearance of the new Amateur category so that those sailors who do not have professional level have equal opportunities and, above all, enjoy this sport.

Mizu and TAPP Water Join FKSS Throughout the season we have worked closely with the FKSS to generate various training and awareness programs to achieve a change in habits that will help sailors to stop using single-use plastics during competitions. To this end, the Foundation has been able to count on the incorporation of two collaborators such as Mizu and TAPP Water. Mizu, a company that, among other products, has stainless steel bottles for sale in order to move the single-use plastic bottles, gave a series of bottles to the organization, part of which were destined to the participants and another part to a raffle on social networks. On the other hand, TAPP Water is a company that has created some interesting water filters with activated carbon technology based on coconut shells that make the water drinkable. This company provided a number of filters that were strategically installed in each location so that sailors and anyone with reusable bottles could refill the bottles in a sustainable manner and without the use of plastic bottles or carafes.

In addition to the collaborations with the aforementioned companies, on Mallorca and Formentera we had the opportunity to generate some very interesting activities by holding several talks led by Toni Frau and Manu San Félix, a biologist, founder of the Vellmarí Association and National Geographic explorer. In these talks, which were attended by the Minister of the Environment of the Consell Insular de Formentera, Antonio Jesús Sanz Igual, the importance of caring for the oceans was discussed and participants were informed of the characteristics and peculiarities of the waters on which they would be sailing, the waters of Mallorca and Formentera. With all this, it is clear the commitment of the Formula Kite Spain Series family with the care of the marine environment. Next year will be full of novelties, many related to the care of the marine environment, so recharge your batteries this holiday season that everything points to the 2021 season will be exciting, we hope!
