Sail-World.com : Downunder Pro Formula Windsurfing Championships set for Botany Bay
Downunder Pro Formula Windsurfing Championships set for Botany Bay


The Downunder Pro Formula Windsurfing Championship will return to Botany Bay, Sydney in 2014. One of the glamour locations for Sydney windsurfing and suitable in all directions of wind; this is one of Australia's premier racing locations.

In 2014, the Downunder Pro will be the first Championships of the season for the Formula Windsurfing Class. It's the event of the year in Australia, for which all competitors and some candidates to the title of World Champion, eagerly await. The Regatta is also a Level 1.0 World Ranking Event for FW and will be the first event on the newly registered 2014 equipment, including the first year of the 2-year board registration cycle.

In Summertime, Botany Bay enjoys mostly 10-15 knot gradient winds each day, with the possibility of sea breezes around 15-25 knots (although winds can be stronger up to 30 knots at times); perfect for windsurfing! With average daytime temperatures of 25-33 degrees, spectators and competitors alike can expect to enjoy the brilliant sunshine almost every single day in January.

Over the years, Sydney has been the hub for windsurfing racing on the east coast, and more recently, Storm-Riders Windsurfing Club has been running events from Georges River 16ft Sailing Club, who will be hosting the event in 2014.

The entry list shows the best of the best in FW will compete at these championships, as well as the top-ranked Australians. This includes 6-time Australian Champion Sean O'Brien [AUS-120] and multiple time Australian Championships event winner and former number one World Ranked sailor from Denmark, Jesper Vesterstrom [DEN-111]. On top of this, a host of Australia's best windsurfers from all over the country will be competing as well as many more internationals from New Zealand and the rest of the world.

The Australian Windsurfing Association invites you to the premier windsurfing event of the summer, right on the doorstep of Australia. This is your invitation to discover a whole new world of sporting regattas.
