We are absolutely thrilled announce the dates for the 3rd stop of the 2016 Hydrofoil Pro Tour, at the picture perfect location of Pointe d’Esny Beach. The Mauritius tour stop is proudly sponsored and hosted at the Preskil Beach Resort, located on the South East of the island in the large lagoon of Pointe d’Esny.

Typical conditions for August are warm tropical 15 to 25 knots trade winds. Trade winds being the life blood of early explorers and there known for being very constant all day & all night!!.
Racing will happen in crystal clear, shallow and protected lagoon waters (between 1.5 and 2m on the course) which is unreal to sail in!

The 4 star hotel has put on an outstanding special rate of just 65 euros per person per day on a half board basis. (Breakfast and dinner included)
Furthermore this rate is valid not only for the riders; But also for any person traveling with them (wife, husband, dad, kids, coach, cheerleaders, pit crew, pen pal).

Want even more… go on then…
The same accommodation rate also applies if you intend to arrive and stay before and/or after the competition dates.

  • If you do get to Mauritius earlier than the competition dates, please get in touch with Jerome through his email: jeromebonieux@gmail.com

He will explain all there is to know about the spot: where to launch, what to watch out for, where you can foil etc..

  • It is recommended to bring a shorty wetsuit, 2/3mm for those chilly days. August is the middle of the Mauritian topical winter.
  • *** We will be racing in the lagoon and although the course location will be constraint to a deep enough area for foils, you will be expected to navigate through a marked channel corals to get to the course. This sounds scarier than it actually is but still be aware of the fact that it could happen that you touch some, a spare wing may be worth packing just in case.
