Windsurfer LT Update 4

Events:

I have just spoken to Bruce Wylie today about the progress of the project.

Cobra is about to produce a third mould to try to keep up with the growing demand. Edoardo in Italy has just ordered 250 boards.

Below is information about events in Italy, I am sure the Italians will help out with charter boards.

In September Windsurfing Japan will be running a regatta, I will chase up details.

In December there will be a regatta at Pattaya, in Thailand, I will chase up details.

In January the Australian Nationals will most probably be held in Sydney around the Australia Day weekend.

Availability:

We have now orders for 92 boards.

The June shipment is sold out, in fact over ordered.

I have ordered 50 more for September so if I don’t order more by the morning of April 16th there are only 8 available.

We will have to order for September 1st delivery by April 16th.

So we are asking for orders along with a $50.00 deposit by April 16th to secure your special offer board and to help us to determine the demand for the September shipment.

Email to me at wwindgen@bigpond.net.au for more details.

After that we will be ordering on June 14th for a late October delivery.

 

Clarifications:

Unlike the prototypes which some of you got to sail, there will be no raised rail pad, this is because it was about 50/50 like /dislike and it complicated production and the costs.

Some of you have never owned a modern board. The screw in front of the mast track is a breather hole – most modern styrenne foam core boards have it. It is there for to equalise pressure if the board heats up or is taken on a plane. Screw it down tight and don’t touch it unless you decide to leave it in a car on a hot day or fly with it. Never, have it open, when the board is wet or in a wet board bag as the water will be sucked into the board.

The Centre Board (CB) insert has a hole in it, if you want to have the CB non removable reverse the plate and put the pivot point in the hole, some schools will take this option for security.

Below are some pictures – there will be available a smaller plastic CB which does not project above the deck and a cover for schools. There is also a cover plate with a hand hold for Stand Up Surfing.

Windsurfer LT Update 3

Distribution:

Just an update as to the growing interest in the Windsurfer Class.

In Australia we have about 74 orders already and 20 new people ( some are old members coming back).

There looks like we will be getting new fleets in Tassie, Adelaide and Perth.

Edoardo is going gang busters in Europe, in addition to the already fleets all over Italy he has enquiries from Spain, France, Germany, Holland and England, running out of enough boards may become the issue.

Bruce Wylie is near to appointing an American distributor where I have been fielding many enquiries.

There are even enquiries from South Africa where there was a large fleet.

Availability:

We are getting 2-3 orders every day , some have opted for September,  and now only have 4 boards available in June.

We will have to order for September 1st delivery by April 16th.

So we are asking for orders along with a $50.00 deposit by April 13th to secure your special offer board and to help us to determine the demand.

You can opt for a June or September delivery. Email to me at  wwindgen@bigpond.net.au for more details.

Best regards
