Just over two months to go until the 2023 edition of the Calasetta Water sports Festival, an event that from 2 to 18 June will offer a series of events, which will be both sporting/educational/promotional and cultural and musical.

The most important event from a competitive point of view will be the IFCA Slalom Windsurfing World Championship for the Junior and Youth categories (around 150 athletes are expected from 5 to 11 June), which follows the European Championship organised last year, also in Calasetta, by the Circolo Nautico Marinai d'Italia Sant'Antioco, affiliated with the Italian Sailing Federation as well as the Water Skiing, Wakeboarding, Surfing and Canoe Kayak Federations, which is once again set to organise the highest class championship in a location, La Salina Beach, considered a true paradise for water sports and windsurfing in particular.

Registration for the World Championship opened a few days ago, with teams from all over the world starting to plan the Sardinian trip, which will certainly keep participants and companions on the island of Sant'Antioco for much longer than the five days of competition. But before and after the Slalom World Championship, there will also be space for SUP, kite, wing foil and kayak, as well as for activities with the disabled.

In fact, the Italian SUP Racing and Paddleboard Championships will be held from 2 to 4 June, with the Calasetta-Carloforte and Calasetta-Sant'Antioco crossings also planned, routes that will be chosen according to weather conditions.

From 5 to 11 June, as anticipated, it will be the turn of the world's top youth windsurfing slalom discipline: an opportunity to see the world's best under-17 and under-21 riders racing to the sound of jibes and glides. On 13-14 June, the discipline that has seen a real boom in the last two seasons will be on stage: there will be promotional activities to get closer to wing foil, the sport that is going crazy in seas all over the world. But there will also be a moment dedicated to those who are less fortunate and face life with disabilities: thanks to the cooperation with "Gli equilibristi Onlus" it will be possible to propose Ocean racing Kayak activities with disabled people on 15 June.

On 16 and 17 June, kite surfing and its educational proposals will fly, while on 18 June, the Calasetta Water Sports Festival will close with a competition of the Regional Ocean Racing Kayak Championship.

The La Salina beach will be bursting with liveliness, colours, and sport, offering 'full' days from morning to evening, when the cultural activities (still to be defined in detail) will come into play, bringing Calasetta to life not only on the beach, but also in the town centre. It will be a start to the summer season dedicated to nature, the sea, and its tourist resources, as Sardinia, the Island of Sant'Antioco, and Calasetta know how to offer.
