2007 Moskito Tour

The 2007 Moskito Tour kicked off at the end of April with the first event at Costa Da Caparica in Portugal and then headed straight onto Les Sable d'Olonnes in the Vendee region of France followed by a great event at La Torche in Brittany. So far La Torche has provided the most testing conditions with strong winds, rain and stormy surf which the 34 competing grommets found challenging. However its the 4th leg of the tour that is looking set to give UK groms the best of the Moskito so far!
