The 2013 'ESET NOD32 Antivirus' Formula Windsurfing World Championship is set to take place at Club Bofor, Viganj, Croatia from the eighth to 13th July and will be sponsored by NORT d.o.o. The venue is well-known to many racers, having hosted previous editions of the Croatian Open Championships. This year’s event is also a stop on the 2013 European Cup Tour.

Viganj is a small tourist place on the peninsula of Peljesac, 6km from Orebic and about fifteen minutes by boat from Korcula. It is ideal place for swimming and all kind of water sports; and especially good for windsurfing -'Viganj is a good spot with 20 knots of seabreeze every day. In July works like a watch!'

Peljesac is a great Peninsula in the south of Croatia. Nearly at the very end of this peninsula, on the see-coast of Adriatic see, is situated a village Viganj. Everybody who has good knowledge of the Adriatic coast can confirm that this part of Croatia belongs between the most wonderful places. Peljesac peninsula is about 80 Km long, with mostly rocky coast, romantic bays and high mountains. The highest mountain of Peljesac is Sv. Ilja with altitude 961 m. Below this mountain and on the coast is the Orebic - not very large historical town.

'If we continue from Orebic in our journey, we reach after approximately 6Km our village in Viganj - a place with its own specific friendly atmosphere, place where the people are going back for their whole Enter Notice of Formula Windsurfing website
