The Kite Meeting in Fano this year was an other wonderfull experience, the weather was ideal, the wind was gentle, the food was good, the BBQ was fun, the beer was fresh, the friendship was great... a fantastic get together of kiters with a few KAPers who all expressed that the idea of a next KAPi in Fano in 2020 would be ideal.
Wolfgang Bieck just opened a Facebook page for the next 2020 KAPiFANO which will take place June 18-21 during the International Kite Flyers meeting but which should be extended between June 14 and 24...
2020 KAPiFano is now a GO, we have time to plan, the idea is to gather KAPers during the largest Kite event in the world in a great location with fantastic KAP opportunities. (90% KAP and kite flying !)
Lodging is simple and rather cheap, you can rent a 2 or 3 bedroom cottage for roughly 100 Euros per day (Air BnB)
Cheaper options are available on some camping grounds with accomodation starting at 20 Euros per day per couple.
Traveling to Fano is simple it is either via Hambourg or Copenhague then with a rental car it takes roughly 3 hours. I tried both options I prefer via Hambourg
(no speed limit on german highways… and a stop at Metropolis Drachen
, right before the Danish border, is fun ! Metropolis Drachen is the largest kite store in Europe, not to mention you can do your grocery shopping right before crossing the Danish border at some very affordable prices !)
