Curacao Challenge - IFCA Prokids Junior, Youth and Masters Slalom World Championships 2011


From 19th until the 24th of April 2011 Laurence Carey from New Zealand will be competing on the island of Curacao in the Carribean. Laurence, who is 17, recently won the New Zealand National Youth Slalom title will be representing NZ at the 2011 IFCA Youth Slalom World Championships. Windsurfing is probably New Zealand's most successful sailing sport and he is following in the footsteps of some big names. Laurence is receiving great support and we will be following his adventure with great interest.


Laurence needs approximately $5000 to make this trip and has so far raised $2000.

Where: The IFCA World Championship (presented by the Curacao Challenge) is held at the best Slalom Area of Curacao, the Sint Joris Bay. Especially in the month of April (also called “Kwarisma” or “windy season”, by the locals), the trade winds are usually at their strongest, the best time for a windsurfing event!
