Freddy kiteboarding in Puerto Rico

The Kiteboarding challenge will be held during the prestigious Puerto Rico Heineken International Regatta and the Puerto Rico International Dinghy Regatta, to be held March 18, 19, 20 and 21, out of the beautiful new marina facilities at Palmas del Mar, in Humacao, located on the southeastern coast of Puerto Rico.

These sailing events attract some of the best big boat and dinghy sailors in the Caribbean - and the World.

This year's move back to where this prestigious and internationally acclaimed regatta got its start in 1977 as the 'Copa Velasco' comes little more than a year after the opening of the multi-million dollar Palmas del Mar Yacht Club Marina.

You will find state-of-the-art amenities at this 162-slip marina, which include restaurants, bars, lounge areas, a swimming pool, shops, a convenience store and deli. In addition, Customs & Immigration officials will be on hand to make entry easy. Discounts are available on marina slips and at the Palmas del Mar Hotel & Villas for one week before, during and one week after the regatta. Come race and relax!

Kiteboarding PR is co-organizing and sponsoring the Kiteboarding challenge. Contact Pedro for more info.

Freddy, local F-One rider, will be participating.

Rob Bain, Layne Beachley, and Dave Macaulay have taken out the Azores Airlines World Masters Championship in the Grand Masters, Women's Masters and Men's Masters divisions held in good three-foot surf at Praia de Santa Barbara.
