Sam Ross will be with us once again this year to provide a opportunity to talk (and practice) everything windfoiling. Sam was one of the earliest adopters of foiling in this country and knows a great deal on how to set them up and sail them well.
The clinic is available for all planing windsurfers, from those looking to achieve first flights (footstrap/harnessing is the required minimum ability) right up to those trying to get their full foiling gybes more consistent and move into racing or foiling-freestyle.
For more information and to book yourself a place on the course, get in touch with the centre on 01305 230296 / 07817 717904. Never thought we’d be saying this … but lets hope for not too much wind that week!
Sam Ross, windsurfing trainer extraordinaire, will be with us to take your instructor qualification to the next level so that you can up-skill and chase down that dream job in a windy location. For more information, get in touch. Course cost is £330.00. Get in touch to book your space by calling us on 07817 717904.
Final T15 Interclub event for the South Zone is this coming Sunday 19th August, hosted by the awesome Watersports Academy in Poole.
This is what they say: “Registration will open 9:00 with briefing at 10:15 and first race at 11:00. The aim will be to finish around 16:00. We have a café which has snacks and drinks but there is a Tesco Express 100m down the road.”
Weymouth Warriors – please let us know if you plan to go!
We’re pleased to announce we’ll have Liquid Force Kiteboarding UK at the centre this weekend, for a demo and a look at their latest and greatest kit. Come along and meet the Liquid Force Kites team. We’ll also be running some body dragging taster sessions during the weekend (conditions permitting), for those that want to try the sport for the first time.
We’re stoked to be welcoming Pete back to the centre on Monday 13th August. To read more about the clinic, click here. Places on the clinic are limited and filling up fast, so if you want to come and join in, just call the centre on 07817 717904 or 01305 230296.
Great day yesterday, with 19 competitors from three clubs. The winds were light, but it didn’t stop a mass of races being completed – results here. Massive congratulations to the Weymouth Warriors, who took the event win for the second time, followed closely by the Academy Allstars and Axbridge Animals in third.
The next event is at Axbridge on the 21st July – hope to see you all there then.
We were very pleased to host the first event of the Team 15 South Zone calendar last weekend. A total of fourteen competitors from three teams entered and completed fifteen races between the four fleets. The results can be seen here. Many congratulations to Will’s Weymouth Warriors for taking the first bullet of the series! Also, many thanks to all the competitors and their parents for making the pilgrimage to our door. Next event is once again with us on Saturday June 23rd. Hope to welcome yet more to our doors then!
