On Sunday, July 6, the 8th Annual Windvibes Watersports Tournament on Long Bay Beach, Providenciales, Turks & Caicos Islands will officially commence. Windvibes is a non-profit event and each year organizer donate proceeds to a charity cause. Last year’s initiative supported the TCSPCA’s Spay Neuter Programme.
Windvibes is also the largest multiple-watersports competition in the Turks and Caicos Islands, annually attracting hundreds to the shores of Long Bay Beach. Over the past eight years, the goal of Windvibes has been to promote kiteboarding and watersports in the Turks and Caicos Islands.
The Windvibes day is split into four main competitive events: kiteboarding, stand up paddling, kayaking, and swimming, with separate events for men, women, and children. As an amateur event, there is no prize money, but rather gift certificates and sponsored items. It’s not about who wins Windvibes, it’s about who had the most fun!
Through a collaboration with local eco-tourism company, Big Blue Unlimited, the events provides a fleet of kayaks and Naish stand up paddle boards for participants to use. Spectators and families are freely allowed to take these out when races aren’t happening.
Spectators on the beach will enjoy music by DJ Dayoh, freshly grilled island food, and many beach games including volley ball, tug of war, big foot walking, and log throwing. It’s truly a day like none other in the Islands!
This year, the event coincides with the annual Race for the Conch Eco-Swim scheduled for Saturday 5th July, creating the biggest watersports weekend the Turks & Caicos Islands has ever seen!
