2017 RS:One World Championships Hoi An, Vietnam 10th to 14th June
Posted On:  07/06/2017 13:56:16

The RS:One Class, in partnership with the Vietnam Canoeing, Rowing & Sailing Federation and in co-operation with Quang Nam department of Culture, Sports and Tourism will hold the 2017 RS:One World Championships from 10th to 14th June in Hoi An, Vietnam.
 
The championship, open to all, will allow international racers to compete through innovative race formats like the Pulsar (compact slalom, America's Cup style) and Marathon (long distance). Courses will be set up in a way that the on-shore audience can enjoy the racing.
 
RS:One is a multi generational, one-design, windsurfing board featuring an easy and light performing 7.8 rig. Espoirs (youth under 22 years old), Seniors (under 40 year old) and Masters (older than 40), men and women, can race together on the same starting line in a collective fleet.
 
Hoi An is a city on Vietnam’s central coast known for its well-preserved Ancient Town, cut through with canals. 30 km south of Da Nang, lies on the branch of the Thu Bon River. Occupied by early western traders, Hoi An was one of the major trading centers of Southeast Asia in the 16th century. All the houses were made of wood, decorated with lacquered boards and panels engraved with old ancient characters. Pillars were also carved with ornamental designs. Hoi An has earned UNESCO heritage site status and has become a very popular tourist destination in Vietnam.
 
The 2017 RS:One World Championships will be held on the beautiful white sand beach of the luxury Hoi An Boutique Resort. Expected ferocious battles for the 51 racers coming from 14 countries and 3 continents including the 2010 RS:X Female World Champion Miss Blanca Manchon. China will attend for the first time an RS:One World Championships looking to impress the international fleet 1 year before the 2018 Asian Games to be held in Jakarta, Indonesia.
 
Stay tuned for great action to come !
