5.    President's report

28 countries representing 5 continents are member of IFCA in 2009.

Last year we had some nice events.



In 2009 the Slalom Worlds were in Texel (NED) and the Junior, Youth and Master World Championship were in Bonaire (AHO).


This year the Slalom Worlds were in Fleixeiras (BRA) and the Junior, Youth and Masters World Championships in Almenarre (FRA).


Slalom Racing is growing in popularity. This year IFCA added the North American Championships to the calendar. In 2011 the South American and Oceanic Championships will be added to the calendar.



The second Pro kids, Junior and Youth Championships Freestyle 2009 was in Portopollo, Sardinia (ITA)


The Pro Kids, Junior and Youth World Championship Freestyle 2010 was for the second time organized in Bonaire from June 28th till August 1st. It was a great success with a lot of very young competitors.


The cooperation with the European Freestyle Pro Tour (EFPT) for the European Championships Freestyle continued with the tour sanctioned to award the European title to the series winner. The European winner in 2009 was Steven van Broekhoven (BEL). 65 competitors of 16 countries competed in the tour consisting of 4 events.


A new event in 2010 was the European Freestyle Pro-Kids Tour with 6 events in 6 countries, scheduled between May and November


Women in Windsurfing

IFCA started a new initiative with the help of Mara Van der Schaaf to bring more women into the sport, the aim "To encourage, support and motivate women in windsurfing, improve their status and boost the participation of women (competing) in windsurfing worldwide". In 2010 a Windsurfing camp was organized the weekend before the European  Championship Slalom in the Netherlands.  Unfortunately the camp was canceled due a lack of participants.

7.    Championship Rules

Some discussion about the scoring when there is a double and a single elimination. In the Championship Rules the double and single elimination have the same value. The AGM asks to study if this can be changed. (ie double elimination counts double)


8.    PWA

IFCA wants to improve  cooperation with the PWA. Also PWA wants to cooperate with the IFCA. One of the key issues is the World Championships. PWA will organize the Pro Worlds and the IFCA the Amateur Worlds. The AGM welcomes the cooperation between IFCA and PWA but does not agree with the name "Amateur Worlds". The IFCA Worlds shall be called "IFCA Worlds".


9.    Windsurfing Competition Rules

The IFCA will propose to change WCR 64.1 to add 64.1(e): "When there is a minor and unavoidable contact, rule 64.1(a) does not apply and no board shall be penalized."
