Over 200 young athletes from 30 different countries are coming on the waters of Torbole, on the Garda Lake, for the youth world championship «Windsurfing Youth Rs:X World Championship 2017» dedicated to the Rs:X Olympic class and planned from the 24th of June to the 1st of July. An event of remarkable size, especially important and spectacular, organized by the Circolo Surf Torbole which ranks among the best – for its meticulous rigor and its proven ability – in the organization of international events.
Thanks to years of experience in organizing wide appeal events, not least the Techno 293 world championship of 2016 – with its 474 participants from 32 countries – the Cst has been able to create a full sized event around this sport competition, an event which will fully engage and involve not only the young Rs:X athletes, but also their families, the enthusiasts of this Olympic surf board and those of windsurf in general. This effort and the result it earned was made possible by the partnership with Garda Trentino Spa (Gold sponsor), Hydro Dolomiti Energia and by that of the ever present Cassa Rurale Alto Garda. The media attention around Torbole and its Circolo Surf for this exciting youth world championship will be high.
For this reason the organisers have worked hard on all sides of the image of this competition. A collaboration was made with the Libera Accademia delle Belle Arti (Laba) for the realization of the logo for the Youth Rs:X World Championship 2017, so that both the symbol of the Garda trentino lake territory and that of the Cst will stay on after the end of the competition. During the world championship the exposition «La mostra dei Loghi» will be set up by Laba’s students, to show the research behind their creation and its origin and meaning. The screens of the Circolo Surf Torbole will also show many video clips and photo features to follow the competition minute by minute, creating from the very beginning total involvement and empathy among the athletes, their families and the spectators. All the photographic and video material will then be collected to document these young Olympic Rs:X athletes’ experience.
Also important for both the respect of the ecosystem and the good image of the community will be the eco-sustainability: the race will be completely eco-friendly thanks to the use of 100% recyclable materials. But between the 24th of June and the first of July there won’t only be the world championship: the Garda Lake Rs:X U17 will also take place, and much more still. The official programme will start in the morning of the 24 June but will be preceded, for those attending, by the world championship teams’ parade (evening 25 June) through the streets of Torbole: a folkloristic moment to join sport and city and thank the latter for its hospitality
