2011 Techno 293 World Championship Event Preview

'techno293poster2011 - 2011 Techno 293 World Windsurfing Championships'    David Wells
The 2011 Bic Techno 293 (T293) Windsurfing World Championships is set to take San Francisco Bay by storm this upcoming July 19th through the 24th . There will be 200+ competitors taking it to the water all vying for the World Championship Title.

It has been nearly two decades since the infamous waters of San Francisco Bay hosted a World Championship level windsurfing regatta and the world's biggest One Design windsurfing fleet looks to change that in a big way. This year's event will see competitors representing 26 countries from five continents including: Argentina, New Zealand, Singapore, Israel, United Kingdom, Russia, and Mexico coming to do battle with the top American windsurfers with the World titles on the line.

The event features divisions segregated by age with the biggest fleet comprised of the Under 17 (U17) age division. Sailing right alongside U17 fleet will be the Under 15 (U15) division and the increasingly popular Open Age division that allows for competitors 17 years old and older to still get in on the racing. All the competitors, in both Girls and Boys fleets, will be riding the Bic Techno 293 One Design Windsurfing race board. The T293 platform offers up all the exciting action of high speed windsurfing while still maintaining the integrity of One Design racing ensuring that it's the best sailors who reach the podium.

Spectators will enjoy front row seats for all the racing action at Crissy Field's East Beach while competitors will be treated to all the trappings of an America's Cup style regatta by the prestigious St. Francis Yacht Club. The schedule for racing is somewhat dependent on the wind but the given the exceptional performance of the T293 and Raceboard classes in light winds, in concert with the incredibly dependable San Francisco sea breeze and world class St. Francis Race Committee team, expect racing to run like clockwork.
