Shopping or windsurfing? 2016 NSW State Championships December 3 and 4

What sounds better? Battling the hordes doing Christmas shopping or jumping on a wally in a moderate sea breeze on a summer’s day with water temp of 21°C!

The 2016 NSW State Championsips will be held December 3 and 4, hosted by the friendly and fun Middle Harbour 16′ Skiff Club. Races will be on the same waters as the 40th Nationals. What better way to practice!

This year, the event will be a 2 day course racing regatta with up to 8 races and  a demonstration freestyle event thrown in.

Following racing, enjoy a drink from the balcony bar as you and your fellow competitors bust out some freestyle moves and fails to give some extra christmas cheer.

You’ll need to be a member of the Association to enter.

Windsurfer Nationals 2014 gate mark

Announcing the 40th Anniversary of Windsurfer in Australia

Forget the PBA, forget the Olympics and the Raceboard World Championships ….

THE 40TH Windsurfer Class Australian Championships is coming to Balmoral (Sydney) next January 2017 (Thurs 26 – Sun 29th)… and it’s going to be big!

We’re expecting the woodwork to be empty as there are so many people coming out of it to join in for the thrills, partying, athleticism, cunning and sheer joy that is wally sailing.

Let us be the first to confirm the rumour that we have been lucky enough to secure some of the real legends of the sport to join in the party…Robby Naish, Bjorn Dunkerbeck, Jason Polokow, Greg Hyde, Lars Kleppich, Phil McGain, Brendan Todd and Barbara Kendall are all not sailing.  Or maybe they will…

Whether your off-season has only been a few months or twenty years it’s time to start planning your attendance.
