than we hoped: 31 talented young sailors came from all over the world like the
islands of San Andrés (Colombia), Crete (Greece), Tobago (Caribbean),
Cape Cod (USA), England, France, Germany, Austria, and of course Italy. In the

Preview – 2003

This year the Pro Center René Egli will host this YOUNG GUNS OF FREESTYLE
CAMP, and like last year the camp will be coached by the instructors of the
windsurfing center together with the JP World Cup team riders like two times
World Champion Josh Stone from Hawaii, 2002 Vice Champion Ricardo Campello from
Venezuela, "Mr. Grubby" Greg Allaway and the World Cup heroes Andy
Pusch from Germany, Julien Taboulet from France and Robby Swift from England.

No limitations: every young windsurfer who is interested may participate! Instructions
will be held for all levels, from Duck Jibe to Spock 540. You do not have to
be a pro sailor to participate and benefit at all.

as challenge and the camp as a chance to be the first step into the World Cup.

One of the highlights will be a contest at the end of the camp where everybody
can show what he has learned. This is all about fun but never the less, the
two winners will be awarded a wild card to compete in the qualification (17.07.2003;
right after the camp) of the PWA Freestyle World Cup (18.-21.July).
