No Speed World Cup in 2010

Not so good news from:

Unfortunately we have to announce that the event in France is not working out as hoped for, which means we have to cancel the 2010 ISWC world championships. It is not yet sure if the event will still go ahead as "French Cup" as in the past years, we will keep you updated on that.

The year 2010 has been an unlucky one for both windsurfer and kiteboarder speed fleets, as the economical crisis has hit us hard and all major events had to be cancelled. On the other side the national events have been constantly growing with fleets exceeding 60 participants - that gives us hope for the future.

For next season we plan to run a series of speed grand prix timed with GT-31 GPS devices presented by LOCOSYS - only time will tell if there will be big world cup events as in the past as it all depends on the economical development at the hosting venues.

Next coming up now is Weymouth Speed Week starting on October 16, and the ongoing speed world record attempt in Luderitz, Namibia, this month.
