The 2009 South American Championships for Techno293, Raceboard and Formula Windsurfing classes will take place from 20th to 24th March in Mendoza province, Argentina.
65 km from Mendoza City, Lake Potrerillos is a scenic recreational area offering camping, lodging, rafting, kayaking, horseback riding, climbing and trekking as entertainment. It is also a fantastic venue to host a windsurfing event![more]
A large dam on the Mendoza River forms an artificial lake that measures 12 km in length and 3 km in maximum width, and is blessed with consistant and daily thermal winds. These “planing” conditions have encouraged the development of facilities lakeside to cater for windsurfers and to provide a great venue for racing events.
This year’s championship is the second major international windsurfing event to be organised on the Lake by the Associacion Mendocina de Windsurf, a very active and enthusiastic group of windsurfers based in Mendoza City.
Supported by the Federacion Argentina de Yachting these championships are guaranteed the technical expertise required to deliver a memorable event, as competitors who attended the 2007 Raceboard Worlds can testify.
