The world’s very best young windsurfers are set to descend upon the Northern shore of Lake Garda between the 22nd and 29th of October, as the tenth annual Big Techno293 World Championships touch down in Torbole, Italy, along with the Techno293 Plus World Championships.
An internationally renowned venue for windsurfing, Torbole looks all set to provide the ideal conditions for top class racing, as well as an astonishing backdrop in the shape of the picturesque Trentino scenery. The action, too, should match if not better those surroundings with the field being made up of more than 500 young windsurfers from over 30 different countries around the world.
The exciting and talented young competitors will be battling it out in the under-15 and under-17 Techno293 classes and in the Techno293 Plus class for those aged over 17. Globally recognised as the feeder classes for all international windsurfing competition, Techno293 is considered to be part of the approved ‘Olympic Pathway’ for young sailors and Techno293 Plus has been picked this year for the Youth Olympic Games sailing programme.
It should come as no surprise, then, that the World Championships in Torbole are expected to play host to all of windsurfing’s best and brightest, who will surely be aiming to pick up gold on Lake Garda and improve their potential future Olympic chances.
