Just three days left until the EFPT tow-in competition at the Vanora Engadinwind by Dakine will kick off at the beautiful mountainlake Silvaplana, Switzerland.

After several successful editions in the past years with big names attending, the 2020 version of the event will be on the next level. Apart of some of the best European freestyler windsurfers like Riccardo Marca (Duotone/Fanatic), Niclas Nebelung (Duotone/Fanatic) and Swiss local Jeremy Pl├╝ss, we will see several European and World Champions on the water.

World and European Champion 2019 Yentel Caers (Point 7), World and multiple times European Champion Steven Van Broeckhoven (Gunsails) as well as Vice World Champion and 2015 European Champion Amado Vrieswijk (JP) will fight for the podium positions against other highly ranked riders like Taty Frans (Point 7) from Bonaire and Antoine Albert (Goya/Goya) from New Caledonia.

This time Sarah will compete in the mens fleet and hold up the flag for women in windsurfing.

The 2020 fleet is completed two young talents: Lennart Neubauer from Greece and Stefan de Bell from Curacao. Both riders compete in the junior as well as the pro division of the EFPT and Lennart Neubauer holds the title of the U16 European Champion 2019.
