I OPEN SURF BCN BY CLUB LLEURESPORT!
The event will take place on a weekend in November or December. What does this mean? It means that during these two months, the championship will take place on a weekend when we have a forecast of good surf. On the relevant Tuesday before the championship, the organisation will put us on “orange alert”, notifying us that it is very likely that on that weekend the championship will go ahead. The following day, Wednesday of that same week, confirmation will be given as to whether the championship will take place on that weekend (“green alert”) or be postponed until further notice (“red alert”).
The championship will take place on Barceloneta beach, using the sports facilities of the IEM Espai de Mar municipal centre. A room will be made available where participants can leave their surfboards and gear, as well as changing rooms and showers. There will also be snack food available all day, as included in the “surfers pack” for Saturday and Sunday lunchtime, with various goodies provided by our main collaborators.
Enrolment costs 30 euros, which includes everything stated above, as well as some surprises that will be progressively unveiled via our social network sites.
Apart from this, don’t forget that you must be federated to take part. If you are not federated, the option is available to subscribe for 10 euros for federation throughout the weekend enabling you to participate.
