2011 RS:X Youth World Windsurfing Championships

from the RS:X Youth 2010 World Championships in CyprusCagliari, in Sardinia, Italy will be the host city for the 2011 RS:X Youth World Windsurfing Championships, from October 22nd to 28th.

The Windsurfing Club Cagliari - that was already busy organizing the RS:X Youth Europeans for the same week - accepted to upgrade the event, originally supposed to be staged in San Fancisco, USA. As the RS:X Class announced on March 3rd, the problem in California was that it had «not been possible to reschedule the dates to leave a comfortable delay between the ISAF Youth Worlds and the RS:X Youth Worlds». Back to Europe and to the Mediterranean, then.

The event will be open to all nations. Competitors shall be of the appropriate age for the event on 31 December 2011 - under 19 years for the 2011 RS:X Youth World Windsurfing Championships or under 17 years for the 2011 Cagliari RS:X U17 Class Windsurfing Championships.

The deadline for valid entries is October 7th, 2011.

Applications for the 2011 RS:X Youth World Windsurfing Championships will be no longer accepted after 120 valid entries for men and 120 valid entries for women.

Entries shall be made and paid online, at the same time, on the RS:X Class website before the entry deadline. No entries will be accepted on site.

Men and women will race separately. There will be a maximum 15 races in a series over 5 race days. Racing will consist of Round 1, Round 2 and a Medal Race.
