The 2008 Allegro Formula Windsurfing European Championships will be held from Tuesday July 29th to Sunday August 3rd 2008 in Leba, Poland. The Allegro Cup is a Formula Grand Prix and Grade 1 Formula Windsurfing World Ranking event.

As a Qualification Regatta, in the Mens Division, for the 2008 Formula Windsurfing World Championships, a total of 5 qualification places are allocated to European competitors in these European Championships.

The Championships will be organised by the Polish Windsurfing Association for and on behalf of, and under specified conditions laid down by the International Formula Windsurfing Class (IFWC), the International Windsurfing Association (IWA) and the International Sailing Federation (ISAF). The event is organised in conjunction with, and sponsored by, QXL Poland (Allegro.pl), the City of Leba, Afekt Promotion and Easy Windsurfing.

The event will be based on B Beach, Leba, the venue for many international events including World Championships and Euro Cups. Leba is a small but very active town, between sea, two lakes and dunes. This is a place where many important events took place, with many historical remains.

It is a well known tourist centre, in the middle polish coast, offering modern hotels and a gastronomic base; and for 15 years – a professional windsurfing centre. Good conditions for the windsurfing and a modern yachting port for 120 boats make Leba popular in the Baltic Sea. Conditions to be expected - winds sideshore and side-onshore; water temperature 18.c; air temperature 25.c.
