Organisation/Reports to ISAF/2004

IFCA Report to ISAF Windsurfing Committee - November 2004.

This is the first IFCA year after stopping the combined  racing/slalom events that we have been doing since the beginning of IFCA. We decided to let go the Racing to the FW class to avoid double medals and confusion.

From this year on we focused on 2 disciplines: Slalom and Freewave (combination of Wave Performance and Freestyle)

We organized the following Championships in 2004.

Freestyle

The European Freestyle Pro Tour was recognized as our IFCA Freestyle Europeans. It was a very successful tour with 11 events and 115 competitors from 14 European countries. Mateo Guazonni of Italy was the most consistent over the season and won the title.

The Freewave Worlds were organized this summer in Guincho, Portugal. We had competitors of  3 continents, 12 countries but although we had waves, we did not have wind! So we were unable to have a valid result.

The Slalom Worlds were at first announced for Taiwan in early September . They were cancelled after political problems and rescheduled for the Isle of Wight, during the Whiteair Extreme Festival at the end of October.  Due to the short notice, a boycott by the PWA we had to change the format down to an Invitational Event and had no valid World Championships.

For 2005 we have the following championships planned:

-         The EFPT Tour will continue as Freestyle Europeans ;

-         The Freestyle Worlds are in Silvaplana, Switzerland, Aug12-15;

-         The Slalom Europeans are  in Cesme, Turkey, June22-26 ;

-         The North Americans  are in Squamish,BC, Canada, July 19-24 ;

-         The Slalom Worlds are in Silvaplana, Switzerland Aug 16-9 ;

-         It is expected that a continental slalom championships will be organised in S America and Asia.

Other activities the IFCA executive have developed:

-         Together with ISAF we worked out a new Production Board Scheme

-         With ISA (International Speed Association )we founded the bases for a World  Speed Tour with 4 International events and we established the cooperation of  ISA and WSA. We try to help them to apply for recognized ISAF class in November 2005.
