October 11th and 12th: Windsurfing on the Mar Menor,
The Mar Menor is a natural paradise on the Murcian coast and ideal for
water sports. Over 70 kms of beaches around the interior sea and many more
along the Mediterranean side of the coast, an average temperature of 17Âº
and good wind conditions, all make the Mar Menor an ideal place for
sailing. And of course windsurfing is one of the most popular nautical
sports, with the Surfari being the most emblematic windsurfing event held
during the year. The Surfari of the Mar Menor is the big autumn meeting
for all windsurfers, with well over a hundred boards and numerous
exhibiters decending on the town of Los AlcÃ¡zares for this classic
The meeting itself combines long-distance races around the Mar Menor with
an exhibition on the beaches of Los AlcÃ¡zares of all the new
that will be appearing next season.
For this, the VI holding of the event, there will be more prizes and more
participants, of whom we hope there will be even more foreigners taking
part. The event, organised by the EstaciÃ³n NÃ¡utica
del Mar Menor (an
organisation bringing together the entrepreneurs of the area), also has
the support of the magazine Surf a Vela.
Two different regattas will be held, one for Formula Windsurfing, with no
limitation on the material used (bring your license and class card), and
another for Formula Open where sails are limited to less than 10 sq.

Apart from the competition itself, the event will coincide with the
Fiestas of Los AlcÃ¡zares and there will be concerts during the
music on the beach, lots of partying and free baptisms in many other
