From 19th April to 24th April 2011, the IFCA Slalom World Championship for Prokids, Youth, Juniors and Masters will be held on Curacao. Online registration already started and with registration discounts for entries before the 31st of March and team registrations. On the IFCA website ifca.internationalwindsurfing.com or the event website www.curacaochallenge.com the registration form can be found.
The organisation lies in the hands of the Curacao Challenge, which, in just its third edition, has proved to be a welcome addition to windsurf competitions around the Caribbean and of course the world.
Curacao has great wind conditions year round with tradewinds blowing of around 20 knots. With an average of 8 sun hours a day and absolutely no need for a wetsuit, this beautiful Caribbean island has everything a windsurfer dreams of. The conditions are similar to neighboring islands Aruba and Bonaire, which are two of the world’s most popular windsurf destinations.
The race itself will be held at the St. Joris Bay, a secluded bay on the northeastern side of the island where nature is still completely intact, no boats and has Curacao’s best wind conditions.
Curacao has good flight connections from Europe, the US and of course Latin America and the Caribbean. Within all destinations of Caribbean airline company Insel Air, they will transport your gear for free. More details will be available on the event website. Also there are deals for accommodations available.
During the event there will be more than just surfing. A Surf Town will be created featuring various activities all with elements of the Curacao lifestyle. Caribbean windsurfing at its best! Also, on our website we will post pictures, videos, results and reports daily.
