The NeilPryde Racing Series continues its global tour with the first stopover in the heart of Singapore, in collaboration with the Extreme Sailing SeriesTM.
The NeilPryde Windsurf Racing Series delighted fans in 2012 as the main warm-up act to the Extreme 40 racing, with world class windsurfers including three-times RS:X World Champion and Olympic silver medallist Julien Bontemps from France and British Olympic bronze medallist Bryony Shaw amongst those that graced the role call.
The NeilPryde Windsurf Racing Series is unique in that it provides a platform for windsurfers of all levels, ages and ability to compete together on a level playing field on the one-design ISAF windsurfing class, the RS:One. And with windsurfing back on the roster for the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games, this dynamic series is expected to draw even more attention in 2013.
Emmanuel Messiaen, One Design Racing Manager at NeilPryde commented: 'The popularity of windsurfing is on the up and the global platform that the Extreme Sailing SeriesTM provides will help boost that further. Racing on the 2016 Olympic waters in Rio de Janeiro for the final act of this year will be a real highlight for us and we invite windsurfers in each venue to join us.'
The windsurfers will be racing from the 13-14 April in the world famous Marina Bay reservoir in Singapore as part of a full programme of entertainment which also includes try sailing sessions, 'chat with champions' for local kids, a free public Race Village including food stands, bars, live music, a family area and a welcome and after party open to the public and hosted by Red Bull.
As Official Windsurfing Supplier to the Series, the NeilPryde Windsurf Racing Series will join all the remaining Extreme Sailing SeriesTM venues this year.
