We start a Women Windsurfing Campaign to boost the participation in, and promotion of, women's windsurfing!
The international Windsurfing Association is focusing on: initiating, stimulating and guiding different projects that support our Mission:
"Encouraging and supporting women, worldwide, to improve their position and increase their participation, in women's windsurfing competitions.
We are focusing our attention on the following Objectives:
To promote, and increase, the coverage and media-exposure of women in windsurfing.
More, or equal, attention paid to women in competition; creating training opportunities; realizing women only events; and increasing the overall level of achievement in competition.
To contact potential womenâ€™s sponsors.
We have already taken some Action:
To protect and represent the interest of our female competitors worldwide, and to co-ordinate the Women Windsurfing Campaign, we have appointed a Women's Representative on IWA. Her name is Mara van der Schaaf.
IWA Women Windsurfing Calendar 2010
One of her ideas has been to introduce powerful women in windsurfing to a broadened audience - via a 2010 Calendar.
"If you have great ideas, or feel that I need to be involved or can assist with projects, please contact me, Mara van der Schaaf.
By realizing a Women Windsurfing Calendar we kick-off this campaign!
Full details on how to get your calendar will be posted on the website soon!
