||Wind conditions are expected between 10 and 25 knots, the average temperature ranges from 24 to 29C and the water temperature is between 20 and 22C. The venue is located 270km south of Lima and the organization of the championship will offer the transfer to Paracas.
The championship is organised by the Asociacion Peruana de Windsurf, with a proven track record as hosts of a South American Championship in 2010.
Paracas bay, with its southern end lying within the Paracas National Reservation is well-known for its abundant wildlife. The unique ecosystem, insulated from thrashing ocean waves and current by Paracas Peninsula, and its shallow warmer waters, stimulates a remarkable growth of seaweed for which much of the wildlife, particularly the birds of Paracas, thrive upon directly or indirectly.
The bay appears as the gateway to Paracas National Reserve, its warmer shallow waters foster wildlife and many nautical sports, and its calm shoreline protects the municipality of Paracas and the various cottages and hotels that have sprung up in the last few years. As of recent years, the bay has hosted many sailors on catamarans and windsurfers seeking the flat water and strong wind found in the bay.
||A great opportunity to bring the whole family on vacation in December! Among other attractions, ride the boat to the Ballestas Islands, where colonies of penguins, pelicans, condors, flamingos, dolphins and sea lions dominate the scene.
