Wave Power in Portimão

This weekend Portimão will be hosting the 3rd International Jetski Endurance competition with top racers from all over Europe converging on the Algarve city.

For the first time, events will be held in two different locations with Praia da Rocha forming the focus of attention on Saturday before switching to the Portimão harbour front on the following day.

Portugal is represented by world champion Emanuelle Balzar as well as the 2009 USA tournament’s bronze medallist Gonçalo Martins – the pair should have the measure of the various challengers representing Belgium and France among the many other national champions taking to the waves.

The action gets under way at 1pm and 3pm off Praia da Rocha on Saturday followed by two more three and one-hour races across the waves at 10am and 2pm on Sunday in Portimão before the winners ceremony scheduled for 4.30pm.
