The first GWA Wingfoil Race European Championship will be taking place in Swizterland this upcoming weekend
Taking place August 13-15 in Lake St. Moritz, Switzerland, this will be the first Open GWA Wingfoil Race European Championship of the GWA Wingfoil Race Class. This means that the only official discipline of the event is Wingfoil Racing. Surf-Freestyle is planned to run as a show format in an expression session.
The Wingfoil Race results of this event will crown the GWA European Champion in the GWA Race Class discipline, but will not count towards the Overall World Ranking. There will be European Champions crowned in 3 categories: Youth (Under 19), Pro (all ages), Masters (40+).
The competition is open to anyone and has no limitation on the number of participants. As it’s an open European Championship, also non-European riders are allowed to compete and will be able to win the event, but the European Champion title (Youth, Pro, Masters) can only be given to the best athlete with a European passport.
The registration for the event closed on the 6th of August.
