"The Techno 293 Class is devoted to fostering the development of windsurf racing for competitors under the age of 17 years old around the world through the promotion of an inexpensive racing format."

The above statement is a quote from the T293 Class Rules - Introduction.

A simple analogy would be to see the T293 as the "Optimist" of the windsurfing classes.

The T293 Class underpins the International Windsurfing Association (IWA) Racing Structure - supporting the senior and youth programmes of both the Formula and Raceboard classes.

The T293 Class is recognised by ISAF as the feeder class to RS:X (Olypmic) Class.

The International Funboard Class (IFCA) supported the establishment of this "junior" class to support its development programme for slalom and speed disciplines.

Techno 293 was selected as eqiuipment for the first Youth Olympic Games – Singapore 2010.

Techno 293 is a “One-Design” class with the Bic One Design 6.8 and 7.8 sails, and rig adopted by the Class.
