We are very excited to announce that the President of Chinese
Taipei will attend the opening ceremony of the RS:X Youth
World Windsurfing Championships at Shili Beach, Penghu Island.
Entries are shaping up nicely too and the local media are starting to
recognize that the Chinese Taipei Sailing Association are hosting a
major international sporting event with more than 60 competitors
from 16 countries and 5 continents taking part. This will prove to be
a great show of support for windsurfing in Asia.
Also in attendance would be the head delicate from the Chinese Taipei Olympic committee - Head of Chinese Taipei Sports authority and CIty and County Mayors. And of course the secret service with their black handy bags.
With this great news , we will have made some small modifications to the schedule for October 20th - We would like athletes and coaches to show up early to Rig up and then attend the Opening at 1100hrs. Following this athletes will go out to the racing area for the Practice Race which with all the assembled press will attract great media coverage.
No doubt National Sailing Federations round the world will notice that RS:X youth windsurfing is alive and well and attracting high level attention in the lead up to the ISAF November Conference.
So we ask that you all athletes and team leaders be ready with in team uniforms for this important event - we will make more information available as it comes to hand - We have asked the President to take part in a group shot with all participants so lets hope he agrees. We are told that he is a very friendly man so it should be OK
