The Jersey Oyster Slalom Championships will be held on the weekend of 30th September for both the Junior and Open divisions. This is change from the original date due to commitment clashes for the sponsor.
Location and timing will be announced nearer the time based on the forecast but the plan will be for 3-5 races for each division based on simple reaching courses. The Junior division will race on Kona boards but aren’t restricted to Kona sails (please get in touch if you’d like to borrow one of the club boards so we have an idea of numbers). There are no equipment restrictions for the Open division.
There are trophies and prizes for each division and you can take it as seriously as you like but the aim is for it to be accessible and get as many windsurfers on the water having fun as possible no matter if you’re on the latest slalom gear or an old wave board from the 90’s.
If conditions aren’t suitable we will roll forward to the weekend of 11/12th November.
Also the British Kona One Class National Championships are being held in Jersey this weekend as part of the Jersey Regatta so good luck to the club members taking part, hopefully the trophy will be staying in Jersey after this weekend.
Hope to see you all on the water soon.
