Pointe d’Esny, Mauritius
Registration and Training Day at Hydrofoil Pro Tour Mauritius, Round 3 of 4
August 16, 2016
Forty-four of the world’s best hydrofoil kiteboarders have arrived to Mauritius to compete in the third round of the 2016 Hydrofoil Pro Tour. This postcard island in the middle of the Indian Ocean will play host to the competition which takes place August 17-20, 2016. Competitors had a chance to go training on the racecourse today giving viewers a preview of this week’s contest.
Highlighted with sapphire blue waters and steady twenty knot winds the lagoon at Pointe d’Esny will be the perfect playground for these athletes. The men’s group is extremely strong including 2016 European Champion, Frenchman Axel Mazella, 2015 World Tour Champion Maxime Nocher of Monaco, and decorated kiteboard racing champion Johnny Heineken from USA. However, an equally compelling story will come from the ladies side of the event where Alexia Francelli (France), Daniela Moroz (USA), and Elena Kalinina (Russia) will go head to head in a long awaited battle between them. “Never before have all three of these top-ranked ladies competed at the same event” said Marvin Baumeister, one of the Tour Organizers and also a competitor. “We are all super keen to see what happens with that result.”
Prizes for the top female competitors, top youth, and top masters competitors. The top overall winners will be awarded including the $10,000 USD prize purse for the podium finishers at the event.
