The Euro-Cup MONDIAL DU VENT kicks off the slalom season

+++ Kiel / Leucate, April 3rd 2007.

Next weekend the Windsurfing Euro-Cup Tour 2007 will start with the Mondial
du Vent. The kick off event of the 2007 series receives a strong interest of
participants. Already 72 competitors from 18 different nations made their
pre registration for the MONDIAL DU VENT which will take place in Leucate in
the South of France from April 5th to 11th. As the maximum number of
starting slots is limited to 80 this leaves only 8 starting slots for
late-entry or on-site-entry competitors. Therefore competitors who are
planning to come to the regatta and have not made their pre registration yet
are reminded to reserve their starting slot to avoid disappointments!

Among the pre registered competitors are some of the big names of the
competition scene: We are looking forward to the thrilling fight between
last years Leucate winner and French national hero Antoine Albeau (FRA-192,
Starboard, Neil Pryde) and the current speed world record holder Finian
Maynard (KV-11, F2, Neil Pryde) from the Virgin islands. He will be
challenged by Steve Allen (AUS-0, Tabou, Gaastra) from Australia, the
current FW World Champion and Ross Williams (GBR-83, Tabou, Gaastra) from
Great Britain, the current FW European Champion. Leucate will also host the
return of the multiple FW World and Euro-Cup Champion Wojtek Brzozowski
(POL-10, Starboard, Severne) to the competition scene after a serious injury
and one season without competition.

The experienced organization team of the MONDIAL DU VENT who have already
organized several other international events will ensure a perfect event.
“For the second year it is a great pleasure for us to organize a Slalom
Euro-Cup here in Leucate La Franqui. The city hopes to see you here on our
perfect slalom beach location with good wind² states Pascal Maka, the head
of the organization team of the MONDIAL DU VENT. ³The premier last year was
a complete success and brought thrilling slalom action for the competitors
with up to 40 knots of wind. We are happy to have the MONDIAL DU VENT as a
reliable partner to finally provide a Euro-Cup event in one of the most
important windsurfing markets. I am convinced that it will be a great event
and a perfect kick off for the EC season.² adds Matthias Regber, director of
the Windsurfing Office.
