The Curacao Challenge: plenty of wind available

The Curacao Challenge 2011 is almost hitting the waters and will be presenting the IFCA Slalom World Championship Slalom 2011 ProKids, Junior, Youth and Masters. The windsurfing event takes place between April 19th-24th.

The local volunteers are working hard to build up the Surf Town in old school driftwood and bamboo. The Sports Class has been opened to all windsurfers, from 0-to-100 years old.

All windsurf races and competitions will be held in St. Joris Bay. During the event days there will be a web camera pointed at the race area. So if you really can’t make it to Curacao, follow all action through www.curacaochallenge.com/livestream

Curacao is one of the Caribbean's best-kept secrets. It offers splendid wind conditions for windsurfers, kitesurfers and yacht sailors.

In the month of April, the local trade winds - also known as "kwarisma" - are usually at their strongest, so it's the best time for a windsurfing event. The Curacao Challenge is definitely the windsurfing competition you do not want to miss.
