    Antoine Albeau has been crowned the king of the Fuerteventura PWA Grand Slam 2014, in the Canary Islands, after five fantastic days of racing. In the eighth elimination round, Josh Angulo was the only man to start by the pin as everyone else opted to start by the boat. But Angulo's gamble paid off as he crossed the line in first place. The American couldn't hold his lead into the opening mark though as Antoine Albeau stormed down the opening reach to take control of the last race.

    Hello again! A very jet lagged Xanthe here, I arrived back into Auckland last Monday afternoon and was back at work straight away. (Might I add, the weather in this country is far too cold for my liking!) So I have had a week to think about writing this email and figure out how to summarise such an awesome two weeks of the most intense racing I’ve ever done, in some of the most testing conditions and against some of the best under 19 female windsurfers in the world.

With an unassuming start, 23rd on the leaderboard at the end of the first race, the 15-year-old Italian clawed his way up day by day. Next was 13th, and then came fifth and finally a first place. Lucie Pianazza claimed the Youth Girls world title and took the first seven bullets of the championship. An emphatic win with less than half the points of her nearest rival, Katy Spychakov who was second in the junior fleet at the 2013 Worlds.

  • Windsurfing Instructor/Schools Update - Adventure Activities legislation

    admin
    29 Jul 2014 | 2:15 am
    This legislation has been in the pipeline for some time - driven largely by a few high profile fatal accidents in the 'adventure tourism' sector - where people with essentially no previous skills pay to experience risk but expect to be completely safe. Unfortunately sports sports and activities like ours have been caught in the backlash, and despite the fact that we have for many years had a variety of standards in place we are still subject to this 'lowest common denominator' legislation. read more

    Omfg what a race!13-16k at the start & 25-30k at the finish just over an hour later and 20+ miles in the GPS. It was indeed a challenge to hang onto the same gear the entire race. My 10.0 was a bit too much as I was doing everything to depower most of the raceI sailed the top of the course and had a good idea of my plan for the race. Immediately gybe after the top mark and get into the flood for the long haul downwind. The mixed fleet of foiling kites, kite course boards & formula boards started on starboard & immediately out of the gates the foiling boards were off like…

    As if the previous 30 mile+ day of overpowered racing wasn't enough- the RC decided to do 3 marathon races across the San Francisco Bay for the 2nd day of the Ronstan Challenge.The course was a start near the St. FYC to a quick upwind mark near the Presidio shoal- across the Bay to a boat stationed at yellow bluff, straight downwind to Harding Rock- then across the bay again to a buoy at Ft. Mason and finally another quick upwind leg to the finish.Since there was a lot of reaching and the wind was supposed to come up quickly- I went for the smaller ml89 formula board and 60cm kashy fin with…
