The 2013 ISAF Council voted that all ten Rio 2016 Olympic events and equipment shall be included in the 2020 Olympic Sailing Competition. In short – Men and Women's RS:X windsurfing will be at the 2020 Olympic Games.
In order to improve the global service quality and product availability in Europe and North Africa, we are delighted to announce a new partnership between Pryde Group and Group Satet, a windsurfing services company based in Brest (France) with Jean-Christophe Saliou and Christophe Boutet.
Mr. Saliou had this to say about the new partnership: "I am passionate about windsurfing, have experience in the TV business and am now Chairman of a communication group. My goal is to breathe fresh growth into the windsurfing sport allowing the maximum number of people to discover racing or to come back to it with a new, positive, social approach that one-design brings. Being part of the Pryde Group network is a stepping stone for us to succeed with all our projects.
Mr. Boutet added: "After being a racer and an international coach, I drove my business for the past ten years. With Jean-Christophe Saliou, we are now managing Aloha Attitude and the Exocet and Xo brands' distribution. With a lot of enthusiasm and ambition we are now becoming the exclusive European one-design distributor (RS:X and RS:One) for Pryde Group. We are committed to bring the RS:One Class to a new level and to optimize the RS:X services with strong presence at the main events in Europe.
