The German Windsurf Cup is known as one of the leading national windsurfing competition series. For the upcoming 2020 tour iQFoil has been fully included in the program. The German Windsurf Cup 2020 offers seven tour stops from May 1st until the final at the beginning of September. Competitors from foreign countries are not only allowed but also very welcome at the regattas and many international riders have already participated in the German events in the past.
"The German Windsurfing Association is successfully running windfoil competitions since 2018. We see that several of our riders are interested in the new Olympic format and new competitors from other windsurfing and sailing classes are also ready to join. Therefore it is the logical consequence to include iQFOiL in our regattas. We want to ensure the best possible platform for the development of the athletes and are excited to see the further development," says Matthias Regber from the German Windsurfing Association (GWA).
In the initial season 2020 iQFOiL will be run combined with Formula Foil. But there will be a separate result and ranking list for iQFOiL. Additionally the new alternative racing formats like slalom elimination series in low winds or long distance races may be run as an alternative to the traditional up-and-downwind races. So the events of the German Windsurf Cups will offer a perfect platform to get competition experience in the iQFOiL format in order to prepare for international iQFOiL events and championships later in the year.
