The World Championships for IFCA Slalom and Formula Windsurfing, to be held between April 28 and May 10, in the city of Terceira, were presented by The Naval Club of Victoria Beach at the Lisbon Tourism Fair.
The ceremony was attended by Victor Fraga, Regional Secretary of Tourism and Transport. "Events like these championships have a multiplier effect for the Azores. The investment in this type of organisation is important not only in the sports context, but also in the strategy that the Azorean government has outlined for tourism, "he said. "Praia da Vitoria within a decade will be a world reference in the sport," he concluded.
Over 200 sailors are expected for these two events. The "Azorian Gateway" has been set up to provide all the information competitors and visitors require for their trip to Praia da Vitoria. You will find:
