Reggio Calabria: enormous regatta field

Italy will be hosting a new stage of the Professional Windsurfers Association World Tour stage, for the first time in 10 years.

The 2012 Reggio Calabria PWA Slalom World Cup has been added to the calendar of competition and windsurfers will have the opportunity to taste the warm weather of one of the oldest cities in Italy.

The windsurfing contest will be played between 19th-24th April on the "toe" of the Italian peninsula. Men and women divisions are planned and everyone should expect thermal winds.

Reggio Calabria is well known as one of Southern Italy’s premier windsurfing locations. The architecture and classical atmosphere of this cosmopolitan city, set a beautiful contrast to the hi-tech, adrenaline charged action that will take place on the water.
