The event EFPT in Matas Blancas, Fuerteventura planned for 26-29 June 2019, must be cancelled due to a negative result of ongoing negotiations between the organizer and the main sponsor.
Despite all efforts by the EFPT and organizers, the event will be postponed to 2020.
Davide Zilli, Head of the organising team in Fuerteventura: “Dear windsurfer, We deeply regret to announce the cancellation of the EFPT Fuerteventura scheduled 26 to the 29 June. The situation is not good at the moment because there is a large change in Fuerteventura Pajara and Government because of new election coming up at the end of the month.
Since last year we are working with them to make it possible, but so far all institutions could support us financially and we haven't signed any contract. They said they'd transcribed the agreed amount, but didn't get anything. Meanwhile we have prepared everything ourselves and with some private sponsors, but it really isn't enough. We must consider that the Government has been the main sponsor, then without their help we cannot continue and nobody knows what happens at the end of the month (After the elections). If another politician takes over, may not take care of us immediately, so this means that even if we put the money in advance with some’ any help we could never back and that it is not possible for us – We are to be honest.
We felt sorry for all riders, for all private sponsors, for sport and for the organising team of the EFPT, they are always by our side trying to help, but we have to make that decision.
We have already started working for next year to be stronger, with an event bigger and with more comfort for riders. Thank you so much for your understanding and see you soon.”
