Wind Brasil 2009 - formula windsurfing at its best!
Posted On:  09/10/2009 21:02:01
Wind Brasil 2009 has grown and now includes two Formula Windsurfing Grand Prix events. Ilhabela has been added to the world tour and precedes the tour finale in Fortaleza, in Ceara State.

Ilhabela, or Beautiful Island, on Ilha de Sao Sebastiao in the state of Sao Paulo, (see the interactive map from Expedia) certainly lives up to its name.  About 85% of the island's almost 350,000 square miles is within Ilhabela State Park, with further development not allowed. Most of the development is on the west coast facing the mainland, and the island's economy is based on tourism.

Fortaleza, meaning "fortress", is the state capital of Ceara.  Located in north-eastern Brasil, it can boast to have 25 km of urban beaches. The warm climate, warm ocean waters and sandy beaches, abundant and varied nightlife, ensures its status as a mecca for tourists. More importantly it is windy!
