Long distance races in Europe
Hey guys,

I wanted to try some long distance racing...unfortunatelly there is not so much on internet about that...or it is hard to find. Could you please help me...

If you know any long distance race, please post a note here...including a webpage if available.
I am more interested on a race on a beam reach I do not like to circle around a smaal course many times...but I guess there is not a lot of such events.

Thanks for reply...
Ciao Michal.

PS: Only Europe, thanks!

Hi pfaffi,

Defi is definetely one of the greatest windsurfing actions. This year the number of windsurfers is limited by 900. The registration is a matter of coincidence (I have heard)...but I will try it.

Thanks anyway...other options are still welcomed!

Ciao Michal.

Nothing in Germany, Holland, Spain, Italy, Corsica, Sardinia, Sicilia...somewhere...something ANYTHING...

Please share your ideas.
Thanks a lot.
Ciao Michal.

now this is an answer you have also some webpages...

Better said, is it possible to register online, and is this only in french or english as well?

I am particulary interested on the race between islands (corse Sardinia)...I was on Corsica in winter this year, and it was like amazing...really like the island!!!

For other readers....give me more...nothing in Holland, Germany, England, Spain, Italy... that's not possible!

Thanks Papounet fot the french list...:D
