Do you know what RS:X Class is?  Neither do I, but it is going to be big on Paros between 25 April and 4 May.  Nea Chrysi Akti, better known as New Golden Beach, is the site of the 2009 RS:X Youth European Championship.



So this is an RS:X windsurfing board being ridden by Laura Linares of Italy.  She is the 2008 Youth European Champion and a Five times World Youth Champion.

Rather than me blather on about something I know little about—I go windsurfing once a year, weather permitting—check out the official site at

All you really need to know is to head over to New Golden Beach during those dates to see world class windsurfing by young men and women.  I suggest you park at Golden Beach and walk the 5 minutes to the venue as the road is narrow with very little parking.

Or I have a villa to rent that is about a 15 minute walk.  See

Gosh, that will be a sight!
How's life in Paros these days?
Had some lovely hols there before I moved to Crete.
Fancy putting me on your Greece Blogger list? I'll put you on mine!
