Bodrum hosts RSX ’09

BODRUM - Bodrum will host one of the most important events in the water sports calendar this year.

Yalıkavak, which is located in the popular holiday resort in the city of Muğla will host the RSX 2009 Windsurf World Championship in summer. Turkey’s victory was declared in a meeting held by the International Sailing Federation, or ISAF, last week in the Spanish capital Madrid. Speaking at a press conference in Istanbul, Turkish Sailing Federation Chairwoman Nazlı İmre declared that Bodrum won the bid to host the prestigious event.

France and Greek Cyprus were also bidding for the host status, but Bodrum was the winner. "The championship, which will attract 350 windsurfers from 45 countries, will give a boost to the tourism of Yalıkavak and Bodrum." İmre also thanked the former Yalıkavak Major Mustafa Saruhan for his support for windsurfing. Saruhan was demoted by the Ministry of Internal Affairs last August. The tournament will be held between July 24 and Aug. 1.
