Informal Slalom Racing, Tenby 25/26th Sept

FYI

We are organising a really informal / social windsurfing Slalom fest 25-26th Sept, South Beach, Tenby.

This was going to be part of the formal SCUK series but now the emphasis is just going to be fun and were trying to attract as many recreational windsurfers (beginners to experts) from across Wales and further afield.

The emphasis is going to be on fun - no kit restrictions - just muck in and race ya mates on what ya got!

(there will be a small charge to cover jet ski petrol etc)

The format etc will decided on the day - but maybe downwind slalom, figure of eight and a masterblast (eg across to Caldey and back maybe).

Hopefully there will also be some prizes going as well (eg Windsurf Ts, caps, keyrings etc).

There might also be some 04/05 Demo kit (tbc)

On the Sat night we'll all go into town and grab some beers and food - venue etc tba

get there for approx 10am...

Unfortunately the wind didnt materialise as forecast - we got weak NW force 2-3....so not enough really unless you were on a 9m and hypersonic.

Real shame as the BWA (Barry Windsurfing A***holes) turned up in force and were really up for it. If the wind had been ok and we had 6.5 weather i guess we'd have had 15 people on the water.

Typically the Sun before brought cross shore 5.7 and sun!

Oh well....
