Open Class Also called the Sailboard Class. The sailor stands on any type of sled or board to control a conventional sailboard rig attached only with a universal joint. The sled may have blades, skis and/or runners.

Hand held sails Class Also called the Free-Sail class. The sailor stands on any type of sled, skis, skates or a snowboard to control a hand-held sail (such as a skate sail, Kitewing (skimbat), wingsail, etc.). Control lines are not allowed.
