We hope that many windsurfers will register for this great competition. The organisation has worked very hard to make this event happen. Great prices, good food, good vibe, good wind etc...
During the competition days competitors will receive lunch and dinner. At the registration they will receive an event lycra, t-shirt and a goody bag full of surprises.|
There will be 4 different disciplines:
