World Festival on the Beach: smile, you're in Sicily'

The 25th edition of the famous World Festival on the Beach will take place in Mondello, Sicily, from 15th to 23rd May 2010. This year's event includes two Team Racing Championships and the Sicily Grand Prix.

Team Racing, as an event for windsurfers, took place in Mondello for the first time last year with the RSX Open European Team Racing Championships. For 2010 the event has been strengthened to include a championship for Techno 293 sailors.

Entry is limited to sixteen (RSX) and eight (T293) teams, and is free of charge. Each entry must be confirmed by the organiser, who will be providing travel and accommodation incentives.

Also included in the programme is the Sicily Grand Prix - where unlimited individual entries will be accepted for fleet racing over the final 3 days of the festival. All Team members automatically get free entry to the Grand Prix.

The Sicily Grand Prix is also open to sailors in the Raceboard and Mistral One Design classes.
