2004 Verizon Wireless King of the Cape Freestyle Pro-Am will be returning
for its 6th year to West Dennis Beach, Cape Cod in June 2004. This annual
event showcases the best pro, amateur, and novice freestyle talent from the
US and around the world. Title Sponsor Verizon Wireless has signed on again
for another year.

"The King of the Cape is one of the most exciting events
we have planned in our region and we look forward to supporting it each
year." --Lynn Mancini, Marketing Manager, Verizon Wireless.

The event would not be a success without the support of our local community,
especially our local shop sponsors coming up big to support this event which
started in 1999 and has continued growing ever since and attracting more
competitors and spectators.

Returning event sponsors from last year include Inland Sea Windsurfing
Company, Sailworld Cape Cod, and Island Sports. New to the fray is
WindSnow&H20, the newest shop on the Cape. Bic Sport North America,
distributors of Bic, AHD, Fiberspar, and Gaastra, has stepped up to the
plate once again, with a leading sponsorship position at the event. New
England Windsurfing Journal has again positioned itself to support in the
promotion of the event throughout the New England region.

And in keeping the fun flowing from 2003, this years event will again
include the WINDFEST DEMO TOUR, where participants can try out the latest
and greatest gear for 2004 season. Manufacturers will be on site, showing
their wares and providing clinics, and demos. Nevin Sayre will be hosting
his KIDS CAMP again each morning on the weekend to induct new sailors into
our sport and provide the foundation to growing our sport, year after year.
Come out to support Nevin, introduce a young one to our sport and try out
some new gear!

We are really excited about the party this year as we are returning to the
culinary wonders of Jim Bremser of the CHATHAM SEAFOOD HOUSE, in Chatham
(http://www.seafoodhouse.com/). They will host the party at their restaurant
Saturday night. We will also be have an informal get together at the ISO
BAR on Friday as well. We had the party here in 1999 and 2000, it was simply
amazing and we are so excited to return. The Saturday party will wind down
on the dance floor with a DJ. Chatham Seafood House is known for its Fish
Tacos, fresh New England seafood, and great Asian style fusion menu.

The pre-registration period for the 2004 begins May 1st and will continue
until May 30, 2004. SAVE MONEY NOW, by registering early. This is NOT just

So, whether you are planning on competing, attending WindFest or Kids Camp,
or just partying the weekend away with everyone, buy your party passes and

windsurfing party in New England. In an effort to bring our participants,
sponsors, and spectators the best deals possible to attend the 2004 Verizon
Wireless King of the Cape and WindFest, we have secured discounted lodging
rates from our hotel sponsor. It was important for us to negotiate these
prices as it is a tourist town during the tourist season and rooms can be
scarce. Please do book your accommodations as soon as possible to insure
that you get the discounted rates and that there is inventory left for your
stay. These rates are good for ANYONE coming to WindFest, Nevin Sayre Kids
Camp, or the King of the Cape.
