Paddle with Champions!
Monday 29 June – Saturday 4 July 2015
We are pleased to announce the 7th edition of the Mauritius Ocean Classic, a race which forms part of the World
Surf Ski Series. This race has already established itself as one of the best downwind courses in the World Series and
also as a fantastic week of surf skiing which should not be missed!
We have introduced some exciting changes to the programme – A Hot Spot dice, a new format for the FTL Sporty’s
team race, more downwinds and more coaching opportunities, an official MOC Insider race from Tamassa to Le
Morne, age category rewards in the two main races and some “Lucky” opportunities to paddle in the back of a
Double with a Champion.
This surf ski week is a wonderful opportunity to combine your sporting passion with a wonderful family tropical
Island holiday! The Tamassa Resort and Race Management team actively promote the involvement of your family
and friends.

the hotel’s main swimming pool, the “Show” restaurant, the “B-Bar” and the boutique are grouped together in a
village style, where each component is ideally placed. The view extends from the mountains through the lush sugar
cane fields, to end up across an azure lagoon towards the horizon.

Located at Le Morne the hotel is surrounded by white sandy beaches in a calm turquoise lagoon. Nestled amongst lush
green vegetation, LUX* Le Morne has been designed in an authentic and sensitive manner, owing a great respect to
