Starboard announces charter of Phantom 295 at two International Events


The first event is hosted in Yyteri, Finland, from June 11th to June 16th, and is the International Raceboard Class World Championships for Men and Women. Forty charter Phantom kits are available for anyone wishing to attend and participate at the event.

The charter fee is 150 Euros and you can contact jarno.rautio@rautio.fi right now to book your own charter kit. To book accommodation with the camping close to the water, contact topcamping@yyteri.fi Entry to the event is via the IWA ( International Windsurfing Association). To ensure top-level competition, the highest placed man and woman in the overall event ranking, racing on the Phantom 295, will automatically receive a ticket to an additional Phantom 295 event held in Thailand, to be announced later this year. Remi Vila, designer of the Phantom 295, will also be present to both compete and present the technical details of the Phantom 295 package.

A quick recap: The Phantom 295 is the new all-in one international windsurfer supported by Starboard, with events held around clubs, centres, schools and championship events, coordinated by Starboard international and a global network of national distributors and partners. The Phantom 295 positions itself as a feeder to many established classes: social and competitive on one hand, and affordable plus practical on the other. One board and three sails are available: 6.5, 7.5 and 8.5

The second event takes place a month later, in Medemblik, Holland. From August 11th to August 19th. This event includes International Raceboard Class Youth World Championships. The Raceboard Youth regulations require that all entrants compete on raceboards under 310cm, with a maximum sail size of 8.5m.
