About Almanarre:

IFCA is returning to one of its favourite slalom hotspots for the 2015 Junior, Youth and Masters Slalom European Championships from 28th April to 3rd May 2015. Notice of race has just been published and on-line entry is now open.

Not only the venue for the 2010 Junior, Youth and Masters Slalom World Championships and the 2011 Junior, Youth and Masters European Championships, Almanarre was also the venue for the IFCA Slalom Worlds 2007 – “the highlight of the IFCA Slalom season”.

Located in the South of France, on the Mediterranean coast, close to the city of Hyeres. The white sandy beach at L’Almanrre stretches for nearly 3 miles along the western spit of the giens tombolo. Visit “Discover Hyeres” or Hyeres Tourism to find out more about the area.


Organizer Fabien ARNOUX, Président of Hyeres Windsurf Organisation, is a windsurfer who has for a long time enjoyed the fabulous spot of Almanarre beach. Hyères Windsurf Organisation is one of the oldest windsurfing clubs in France.

Almanarre and its club have have produced some well known champions in the past and will try to do it again.


“Now my pleasure is to let others enjoy windsurfing, during the competitions we have organized”. As president for two years Fabien started by organizing local competitions, followed by national events and then the upcoming IFCA Slalom European Championships.


The Idea: “Last year when we were in Roses for the Youth & Master World Championships, we discussed with Bruno de Wannemaeker ( IFCA President) our proposition. He liked it, he knows us, he knows Almanarre.”


The Expectations: “The maximum number of countries represented in a maximum number of races run to make a successful European Slalom Champions. For this we need the best windy conditions, and so we have chosen April the best period.”


You are invited because: “those who already know Hyeres do not need to be persuaded to attend, this invite is for those who have never been here and should definitely

come to experience it. Don’t hesitate to join us


Special thanks to: Local Authorities: Toulon Provence Mediterranee, Provence Alpes Cote d’Azur Region, and the Mayor of Hyères city for doing his best for nautical activities including windsurfing.


See you on 28th April
