The Engadinwind 2017

writes sports history




With the 40th anniversary of the Engadin Surfmarathon the Regatta is the oldest still existing Windsurfing event in the world.

All winners of the last 40 years have been invited to the wonderful Engadin for a one-time anniversary. Olympians, World Champions, European Champions and Swiss Champions have followed the invitation and will compete with the legends of windsurfing on the "Legends Race" from 18th  - 20th  August on Lake Silvaplana.

The Swiss surf legend and windsurf pioneer Charly Messmer, who won the marathon in 1981, will be guest in Silvaplana. Also present will be the fastest windsurf women in the world and 29-time world champion Karin Jaggi from Bern. The mother, windsurf pro and marketing manager of her own windsurfing brand won the marathon in 2003 and became a freestyle world champion in her home country at the Lake Silvaplana 2005.

From the Swiss perspective are two athletes very interesting, the Olympic athletes Jan Bonga, who won the Regatta in 1987. He will start with his original Olympicboard and the multiple Swiss champion Richard Stauffacher who won the Engadin Surfmarathon 2009 and 2013. The list of winners and windsurfing legends is long. Active and former windsurfers from 15 nations are expected to celebrate the great anniversary in the Engadin on Lake Silvaplana. Special mention should also be made of the two record winners who won the marathon four times in the years 1988 - 1999. These are the Olympic Windsurfers Timm Stade and Matthias Bornhäuser, both from Germany.
