They’re back after high demand! The NWF Winter Windsurfing Camps will kick right into action next month, following the end of the 2017 BSA Series. There’s a new dimension to them now though… Everything will be covered as usual, from core skills to specialist slalom racing, but new for this year will be the option to make the camps foiling focussed, should the conditions be light. So whether you fancy having your first flight … or want to practice racing your foil, the vertical can be challenged! Dates for the camps are as follows:
- 11-12th November ’17
- 9-10th December ’17
- 6-7th January ’18
- 17-18th February ’18
- 17-18th March ’18
Cost will be £30 for one day / £50 for 2 days and will include tuition from the OTC staff and a guest coach for the slalom group. For more information, or to book your place drop us an email
Over the winter the OTC will provide core skill training once a month for Techno sailors. The training sessions will be provided by Ali Masters, focussing on board handling skills and transitions in both light and strong winds, race tactics, starts and mark roundings. The winter period brings challenging conditions, and these training weekends are designed specifically to help the aspiring young racer become a stronger, more confident sailor. Dates for the training camps are as follows:
- 18–19th November
- 2-3rd December
- 6- 7th January
- 10-11th February
- 10-11th March
