Baja California Sur boasts world-class conditions for a number of water-based activities: Fishing, of course, but also surfing, sailing, diving, kayaking and, seasonally at least, windsports. Each winter, when strong El Norte winds blow down the Sea of Cortez, picturesque East Cape communities like Los Barriles and La Ventana become meccas for windsurfing and kiteboarding enthusiasts.
Just as Los Barriles hosts its annual Lord of the Wind Showdown, La Ventana hosts its “Classic” windsports competition, with windsurfers, kiteboarders and SUP (stand up paddleboarding) enthusiasts battling the breezes to earn cash and glory in various categories. This year’s event is scheduled for Jan. 25 – 29, with proceeds earmarked to benefit local schools.
The official dates for this event have been announced. The La Ventana Classic will take place Jan. 25 – 29, 2017. However, event dates and schedules are subject to sudden change and cancellation. Please confirm with the event organizer before booking your trip.
