TORREGRANDE, THE FORMULA KITE BIG NAMES RETURN GREAT CHALLENGES BRANDED EOLO BEACH SPORTS FOR A MASTER WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP AND A YOUTH EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP
Marina di Torregrande – From May 21st to 28th, 2023, the Gulf of Oristano hosts, for the third consecutive year, the great champions of kiteboarding, and it does so with two major events. The organization is led by Eolo Beach Sports and Open Water Challenge under the auspices of the Formula Kite Class Association. There are only 60 days left until the great challenges in the waters of Oristano: athletes competing in the “Formula Kite Youth European Championship” and the “Kitefoil Open Masters World Championship.”
The road to Paris 2024 is getting shorter, with less than 500 days until the start of the Olympics, and Torregrande is a stretch of the journey that leads to the Gulf of Marseille, where kiteboarding will make its entry into the Olympic Games. The Oristano global water event is one of the Major Sporting Events sponsored by the Tourism Department of the Sardinia Region. France, Denmark, China, Mexico, Czech Republic, Switzerland, and last but not least, Italy, are the countries of the athletes who have already registered for the Youth European Championship and the Masters World Championship hosted by Sardinia and Oristano. Among them, the number 2 in the world ranking, Italian Riccardo Pianosi, has confirmed his presence, already a protagonist in 2022 and 2021 at the Formula Kite in Torregrande.
“We are ready to host the great Formula Kite organization that chooses Torregrande every year to hold one of the most important regattas in the world, and this time we double it with a European championship. We can only be happy and honored. We look forward to welcoming numerous visitors to watch the event for free from the beach,” explains Eddy Piana, organizer of the event branded Asd Eolo Beach Sports and Open Water Challenge.
