Dace Kurpniece of the WWEC announce the second event of their ice-racing series this weekend, 18-20 February, in Haapsalu, Estonia…
The up-coming weekend, February 18-20th is expected to be interesting for those who are going to Haapsalu, Estonia to watch or participate in Winter Windsurf European Cup (WWEC) 2011 second event and Aloha ice challange. First event took place in Kaunas, Lithuania in January and race happened in all three disciplines – slalom, course race and freestyle.
There were 5 events previous season; all of them in Slalom discipline. For course racing it was either not possible to mark a normal track or the wind was not strong enough. Last year’s European Cup in Slalom discipline went to Latvian racer Aleksandrs Leontjevs. This season we hope to arrange both Slalom and Course Race to find out who is going to be the new European Cup holder.
The Winter Windsurfing European Cup is organized by Aloha in cooperation with Winterwindsurf.com and Estonian Windsurfing Association.
The next WWEC event is expected in Finland, Saimaa, which will be held right before WISSA (ice and snow sailing world championship) 2011 – an event for a week. 10 days, 7 sports, over 100 competitors.
