Surfing & Kiteboarding World Cup on Fuerteventura

Windsurfers and kiteboarders think of Fuerteventura as the Hawaii of Europe. As well as white sand beaches, blue skies and all year round summer temperatures, the island also has all the wind a windsurfer or kiteboarder could wish for. The wind-powered acrobats fly distances of up to 70 metres, reaching heights of up to 15 metres.
From 17th July to 1st August 2009, windsurfing and kiteboarding world championship events will be held on Fuerteventura. The windsurfing programme includes slalom and freestyle disciplines. The kiteboarders will compete in the freestyle discipline and there also will be a kiteloop competition.
Slalom is the Formula 1 of windsurfing. The event consists of a high-speed race around a course marked by buoys, with tense tussles for position and spectacular overtaking manoeuvres. Both windsurfers and kiteboarders will compete in freestyle events in which a jury of judges awards points for spectacular leaps and breathtaking manoeuvres.
With no exhaust fumes or engine noise, the competition for world championship points shows just how congenial and in harmony with nature top level sport can be. Once they’re out on the water, the competitors really give it some juice – using the latest equipment, they utilise the wind so effectively that they can accelerate faster than the fastest sports car.
The competitions are held at a spectator and camera-friendly proximity to the beach. Direct contact between competitors and spectators is encouraged. The extreme sportsmen and women are more than happy to have spectators looking over their shoulders whilst preparing for the off.
There is also a wide-ranging programme of events and plenty to help you keep body and soul together. Spectators can chill on the beach with drinks, snacks and music whilst watching the events in the 1,000 m² lounge area. At night, thousands of visitors and locals groove together at the legendary World Cup Parties in the 2,000 m² party tent. At the award ceremony, the competitors will also join the fans in painting the town red.
Organiser information: The world cup on Fuerteventura is sponsored by the town of Pájara (Fuerteventura) and the Spanish Government. The event will, as it has for the last 24 years, once again be organised by René Egli and his team.

More Flights Coming To Fuerteventura

More Flights Coming To Fuerteventura from the UK

EXETER International Airport has signed a deal with an airline and tour operator which will run new flights to two winter holiday hot spots. Palmair will be flying holidaymakers from Exeter to Tunisia in November. The company will also operate flights to Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands, for one or two-week holidays, from November until the end of March, 2010.

The airport’s managing director Jamie Christon, said: “This is great news for the airport team and for those wanting to fly to guaranteed sunshine this winter. Despite the gloomy economic conditions, these new routes may be an indicator of better times ahead and I am confident that these flights will sell out quickly”.

UK-based Palmair, which operates from offices in Bournemouth, was voted Britain’s most popular short haul airline last year in a survey by Holiday Which?

New Flights and solid Real Estate prices in Fuerteventura all help in the Islands progress as a place that is growing on the touristic map of Spain

Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands has recently been named a Bioshere Reserve, all this is seen to assist and help in the growth of the island, which will produce good returns on real estate prices, provide a better environment for visitors and access is being provided by more and more flights to the Canary Islands from the UK.

Last week it was announced that UNSECO have made Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands a biosphere reserve. This means that Fuerteventura have been recognised as having a unique environment and that the islanders are working to ensure that people and wildlife live harmoniously together. This should help to stop some of the over development that has happened and keep the island the beautiful, peaceful place that has made Fuerteventura a place for those that have visited a place we all love. The announcement that Fuerteventura has been named as a UNESCO biosphere reserve, what you can do to help the Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands live up to this honour. The award is given to areas where people and the environment are working to live in harmony with each other and the recent survey that showed a 30% increase in the Hubara bird in just one year helps to confirm this. But you cannot just leave this up to the Cabildo to follow good environmental practice, this has got to come from every one of us who visits Fuerteventura for their vacation / holiday.

The immediate thought that comes into people's minds when they think of themselves and the environment is recycling, but in many ways this should be almost your last resort.......

More good news on flights to Fuerteventura island this week, Palmair are going to come to Fuerteventura from Exeter for the winter season, these start in November.

Sterlings climb improves the Spanish and Canary lslands Real Estate markets

Sterlings value affects the real estate markets in the Canary Islands and Spain, with a particular increase in the Fuerteventura property market has seen a significant increase in business from the UK that has increased in line with the improvements and gains that sterling has made recently.

Sterling on Wednesday morning saw a decline against the major currencies on Tuesday had nothing to do with the unemployment data and nothing to do with the monetary policy committee minutes: Neither came out until an hour and a half after it had set off south. Almost on the dot of eight cable began a slide that cost it two and a half cents in the following five hours. Sterling/euro cut just over a cent in slightly less time and sterling/Swiss performed proportionally badly. The move was provoked by a softer tone to equity markets, with all that implies for risk appetite. After a rally lasting more than a week investors knew a profit-taking signal when they saw one and they lobbed out their surplus pounds.

As far as the unemployment numbers went, they were acceptably bad. Jobless claims rose by less than expected as did the unemployment rate, which rose to 7.2%. The MPC minutes showed unanimous approval for a continuation of the asset purchase programme.

The US inflation data painted an interesting picture. Prices went up by just 0.1% in May and prices excluding food and energy did exactly the same. That symmetry was entirely absent from the annual figure. In the 12 month to May headline CPI fell by 1.3%. "Core" prices, excluding food and energy (commodities, in other words), were up by 1.8%. What happened last summer? Commodity prices fell out of bed, led by oil. Although prices did not bottom until December they are already back up to October's levels. In four months' time that commodity price deflation will have worked its way through the system and headline inflation will be heading back into line with core inflation. Put that together with the possibility of growth in the second half of the year and you see why investors are already speculating that we will see higher US interest rates by Christmas.

But that is all in the future. For the time being, those central banks that still have scope to do so are still lowering their policy interest rates. There have been rate cuts in Iceland, Brazil and Turkey this month and it is possible that South Africa might join them next week. Today's meeting of the Swiss National Bank is highly unlikely to result in a change to its 0-0.75% target range but be prepared for other developments. Back in March the SNB threatened to intervene if its currency became too strong. They did it too. Three months on they may decide that it is time for a reminder.

The group Chambao will play on July 4 in the Festival ' Fuerteventura in Music

The Malaga's band'Chambao' is one of the best exponents of the Chill out music in Spain. 'Chambao' was born when Henrik Takkenberg knew three persons from Malaga (Maria del Mar, Eledi and Dani, components of the band) and they began to fuse the Fleming with electronic sounds.
Their first work, ' Flamenco Chill ', was a best-seller. Their second disc, ' Endorphins in the mind ', already without Henrik between them, guaranteed them in the musical panorama, obtaining a Premio Ondas. ' Ahí estas tu ', it was a whole success in Spain on having turned into sonorous band of an advertising spot for the tourism of Andalucia.

Fuerteventura Named As Biosphere Reserve

As well as a tiger reserve in India and a former military training area in Germany Fuerteventura is one of 22 new sites from 17 countries added by the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) to its World Network of Biosphere Reserves.

Biosphere reserves are areas designated to serve as places to test different approaches to integrated management of terrestrial, freshwater, coastal and marine resources and biodiversity. As a result, they are sites for experimenting with and learning about sustainable development

Fuerteventura is the second largest island of the Canaries archipelago, close to the West African Coast. It includes a wide range of ecosystems from desert or semi-desert areas to coastal and marine habitats. While the island is characterized by a rich diversity of marine species, including dolphins and cachalot’s, as well as marine turtles that reproduce on its beaches, the biosphere reserve also represents one of the world’s major geopalentological observatories. Development of sustainable ecotourism practices is the major focus of the population living on the island. The island is also investing in the increase of its renewable energy capacity, mainly through wind-based and solar energy production and is representing itself as one of the models for the implementation of the European Union's Directive on Renewable Energy.

The other new sites are: Lagunas de Montebello (Mexico), Flores Island (Portugal), Geres-Xures (Portugal and Spain), Shinan Dadohae (ROK), Altaisky (Russia), Vhembe (South Africa), Giam Siak Kecil – Bukit Batu (Indonesia), Great sandy (Australia), Lajat Biosphere Reserve (Syria), Desnianskyi (Ukraine), Delta del Orinoco (Venezuela), Cu Lao Cham – Hoi An (Viet Nam), Mui Ca Mau (Viet Nam), Mount Myohyang (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea), Biosphare Bliesgau (Germany), Similipal (India), Pachmarhi (India), Nokrek (India), and Jabal Moussa Biosphere Reserve (Lebanon).
