Fancy windsurfing in the Greek islands?
Whilst it is not normally a destination that springs to mind with the average holiday maker who dabbles in a little windsurfing between bouts of sunbathing it's a serious business in the Greek Islands this year.
On the island of Karpathos which is approximately 10 miles south of the popular holiday Island of Rhodes, a round or heat of the Speed Windsurfing World Championship is being held between Friday July 31st and Wednesday the August 5th 2009. According to reports this year, anyone willing to give it a go can apparently compete with all the famous professionals who are aiming to win the 2009 World Championship.
There is though a entrance fee rumoured to be 160 Euros but then again you do have the chance to win 25 000 Euros.
The most recognized windsurfing areas in the Aegean sea are said to be on the beautiful holiday islands of Naxos, Paros, Lefkada, Rhodes, Karpathos, Kos, Mykonos and of course Crete. Whilst Karpathos does have an airport you normally have to fly via Athens. Most holiday makers choose to take a cheap flight to Rhodes or Crete and hop on a ferry.
So if you want to try something different or simply sit in the sun and watch it happen then hop on a cheap flight and give windsurfing a try in the Aegean this summer.
