Fifth stage of the Kite Tour Europe published

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

The Kitesurf Tour Europe just has finalized it`s fifth stopp.

This up to date final of the 2010 series will be held in Swinemunde, Poland. The village is located between Danzig and Stettin at the baltic coast line and can be reached via Berlin in about 2,5 hours.

The Swinoujscie City Council is happy to host this stage of the Kitesurf Tour Europe on the last weekend of the polish summer break: "It will be a great sports location and party week from August 25th. - 29th.", Marek Senior Rowinski, one of the local organizers, states.


The hosting city

Swinemunde is a popular Polish seaside resort located on the Usedom Island just by the Polish-German border. The city is a sea ferry hub to Scandinavia. One can reach Swinemunde from Berlin 230km (via Anklam), from Szczecin 110km (via a river ferry at Karsibór) or from Scandinavia by sea ferries (from Ystad, Trelleborg, Malmo, Copenhagen, Ronne)
The event takes place in the last weekend of the summer holiday. Thousands of tourists are expected as at the same time 40th International Artistic Campus FAMA will be performed.

The spot.
Swinemunde is famous due to beautiful, white-sand beaches (the widest in Poland – up to 100m) and warm water (+22C). The spot works well with winds from W by N to E. The most admired direction is NE-ly during summer months enhanced by thermal wind and Gosań hill – the highest Polish cliff. When the high pressure stabilises above Scandinavia there is a chance for two weeks of NE-ly 25kts every afternoon while no wind blows anywhere else at Southern Baltic coast!
This thermal wind combined with 1,3km harbour breakwater provides excellent conditions for everyone: perfect flat water and long waves (up to 4m) for frontside riding at the same spot! There is no tidal current, no tides, no shorebreak and on top of that low salt water.  Some current might be running with strong W-ly gales. Ferries entering or leaving the harbour might disrupt the wind flow but they will provide magnificent background in the picture. Behind the dunes runs a new built promenade with numerous restaurants, pubs and bars.
