PWA World Cup comes to Turkey

The Turkish Aegean resort town of Alacati is to host the Pegasus Airlines Professional Windsurfers Association (PWA) World Cup slalom races.

The World Cup, which takes place from August 8th to August 13th, will see the best windsurfers from the world come to Turkey to compete to be crowned champion in the awards ceremony on August 13th.

In the men’s competition, Bjorn Dunkerbeck of Sweden is the current leader followed by Antoine Albeau of France. The women’s competition is headed by Sarah-Quita Offringa, Alice Arutkin, Fanny Aubet, and Turkish duo: Lena Erdil and Cagla Kubat.

The competition will come to an end in Denmark where the men’s championships will be decided following the competition stage in Alacati. The World Cup officially began in February in Vietnam.
With Turkey currently fine tuning a bid for the 2020 Olympics, hosting the PWA World Cup will be a good chance for the Turkish government to show what they can do and to put on a good show to impress the selectors.
