Gran Canaria Pro-Am is postponed until 2021 due to continued international travel and large gathering restrictions.
(Press Relaese) Ericeira, Portugal, Wednesday 15th September: After extensive discussion with Government, Tourism, our local Organize and all local Partners involved with the Gran Canaria Pro-Am, it is with great disappointment that the APP has no choice but to postpone the 2020 edition of the Gran Canaria Pro-Am until 2021.
With the current travel restrictions in place and looking to remain for some time, coupled with the increased concern surrounding larger gatherings and uncertainty around all aspects of holding an event during these times, it was unanimously decided that it was better to hold off until 2021 for this annual pilgrimage to the beautiful North Shore of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
That being said, all parties remain 100% committed to the event as one of the flagship stops on the APP World Tour and look forward to welcoming the Gran Canaria Pro-Am back in 2021.
“The Gran Canaria Pro-Am is one of the major international sporting events to come to the Island each year, as we celebrate the World’s very best Stand Up Paddlers in the warm waters and beautiful coastline that we are lucky enough to have here in Gran Canaria. While it is disappointing not to be able to run this year’s edition, we are excited to welcome everyone from the APP back in 2021 – Saludos, Bjorn”, said Bjorn Dunkerbeck, event organizer and 42x Windsurfing World Champion
