Jersey Windsurfing July Update

Hello Windsurfers

A few dates for your diaries coming up but first congratulations to the windsurfers who took part in the 160th Gorey Regatta last weekend. This is one of the oldest continually running regattas in the world and it’s great to see the windsurfers represented and there were some close results.
Have a look at the photos on the Facebook page:

Jersey Regatta – 15-17th September
There will be a Kona class again at the Jersey Regatta this year so if you missed out at the Gorey Regatta this could be your chance. We had a good fleet of Konas last year though the top prize went to Guernsey so hopefully we can get a good showing again this year. Club boards will be available for members to borrow.

Remember there’s also fun Kona racing at St Catherines every Thursday evening through the summer. This is a great way of getting some regular time on the water and keeping your skills fresh whilst there’s not much wind around. Races start at 7pm and if you’d like to borrow a club board and give it a go then get in touch.

Jersey Oyster Slalom Championships 2017
This is the clubs big event for the year! There will again be a Youth Class racing Kona boards and any sail up to the maximum for their Kona weight range and an Open Class with no equipment restrictions and both run on simple reaching courses so everyone can take part.

The provisional date will be Sunday 15th October but if there is not enough wind we will roll over till the 11/12th of November and then subsequent neap tide weekends till the end of the year if we need to.

Membership Reminder
It is a requirement for windsurfers to be insured in Jersey and the Coastguard have sent reminders round along with a warning that there could be a fine of up to £2,000 if not.

All paid up club members are covered by the club insurance at great value and fees also go towards running club events and junior sessions. So if you haven’t paid up already now the time. See the Membership page.

Also don’t forget to join up to the new Jersey Windsurfing Group on Facebook if you haven’t already.

Hope to see you on the water soon.
