The last weeks, there has been a lot of discussion about the festival and freestyle competition in Stella Plage (France). Dominique (organiser) only communicates in French, so here is a brief translation in English:
Dominique has had a lot of friendly discussions but an agreement was not possible. The members of the tourism office decided to cancel the festival without informing Dominique who is organising this festival since a long time.
Dominique decided to get in touch with other people and an agreement was made in the first week of february: the Europale Cup will take place in 2014 but not in Stella Plage. The competition will be held in Bray Dunes (very close to the border of lovely Belgium ).
I think for the British people it won't change a lot. (Calais - Stella is 70 km to the south and Calais - Bray Dunes is 60 km to the north). You can also come over by taking the ferry to Zeebrugge or Dunkerque (wich is very close to Bray Dunes).
Want last-minute info? Don't hesitate to send an e-mail, I talk to Dominique quite regularly.
