Raceboard Worlds - Day One - The Opening Night
Posted On:  19/11/2006 09:25:07

The opening night of the 2006 King Power Raceboard World Championship was a spectacular occasion. More than 800 people - sailors, officials, and guests - attended a gala evening hosted by Raimon Land and Northpoint.


A sumptuous buffet and free bar was provided throughout the evening, with entertainment provided by a series of live acts from around the world - fire eaters from Thailand, Capoeira from Brazil, Tango performance from Argentina, a live band, and a fashion show of beachwear.


The occasion combined the opening night of the championship with the official opening of the Northpoint beachfront luxury condominium by developers Raimon Land, whose motto - "developing a better environment" - strikes a chord with windsurfers worldwide.


Miss Universe 2005, Natalie, was joined on stage by representatives of the hosts to declare the official opening and ignite a magnificent firework finale.


For those willing and able the party continued into the night - with the prospect of a second day of registration and recovery an incentive.
