The Alacati Wind Fest 2013 organized the IFCA Youth & Masters World Championships 203 at the windsurfing center of Cagla Kubat in the bay of Alacati. The event had more than 50 competitors and took place from July 1st till 6th. Each competition day saw enough wind with peaks far above 20 knots, what allowed to run many eliminations. In total 216 starts were counted and 8 full eliminations got completed, what allowed 3 discards in the final results. Have a more detailed statistic just below. Beginning of July is an excellent time to run a competition at Alacati, Turkey as the wind is really steady at this period of the season. And it was great to see that 23 Juniors and 36 Youth participated in the event. A strong sign of the young generation in the Slalom discipline.
