Mauritius Freeride Challenge 2014
August 2014 Dates to be confirmed ........

Come on SA we need 10 or more riders so that we can go and cheapest generic cialis and kick those Islanders butts.

In 2013 we were horribly beaten by the French, Mauritian and those despicable Aussie's. We need revenge, so we are looking at putting a big team together this August, so that we can at least win the party's.

The final showdown of the 2013/14 WSA calander - Langebaan 24/25/26 Jan 2014

After very successful Sterkfontein and St Francis Bay events, the WSA final overall rankings now depend on the Langebaan showdown. The WSA event will not be held over to an alternative weekend should there be insufficient wind to run the event. The Langebaan Downwind Dash counts as a single WSA race and will only be included into the WSA results should the Langebaan Downwind Dash and WSA Langebaan slalom event take place between the 24/25/26  of January 2014. We are looking for volunteers to assist us with the racing and would appreciate any assistance.

A very big thank you to Greg Betts and http://www.hkpjc.org/index.php/buy-seroquel-online-uk everyone involved in making the event happen. A seriously awesome event even though we had to use the hold over day. A great shame for a few of the boys who had to leave early as your presence was greatly appreciated and we are all sorry you could not take part.

PE SLALOM CLASSIC VENUE CHANGE

The venue for the 2nd round of the WSA slalom tour has been changed to St Francis Bay.
Dates as they were : 29th Nov - 1st Dec 2013.

Due to recent logistical and beurocratic issues the second round of the WSA national slalom tour (PE Slalom Classic) has been moved to a new venue (St Francis Bay). The WSA committee has decided to change the venue to St Francis bay where all sailors will be based. (Accommodation options will be made available in the NOR next week 10/11/2013). This will give organizers the choice of 3 awesome slalom venues to choose from.

Notice of Race

 

** St Francis Bay = Good for Westerly and light Easterly

** Kabeljous Lagoon = Good for Easterly and strong West. (dependant on water level)

** Dam in the East = Good for strong Easterly

 


Around Robben Island
Chritiaan Chris and I, looked at the forecast and couldn’t resist. Around Robben Island does not sound like a big deal on a windsurfer, yet were we in for a surprise. We met at Big Bay at 2pm and only for you prednisolone online were in two minds what size sail to rig. Eventually we decided on our 9.5 sq. m sails as we had heard that the wind shadow that Table Mountain creates would make it very light around Robben Island. At Blouberg beach it was blowing 15 to 23 knots at 2m when we set off. We decided to go around the north side de of the island and to the tack around to the Southside. We took extra fins, flares, cell phones, bottled water and we thought we were seriously prepared. From Blouberg beach to the island was a beautiful 11 minute downwind run and we were sailing at about 20 to 23 knots.  Passing the North end of the Island, suddenly without warning someone switched the wind off. West of the Island was simply hell, as the wind shifted with every gust and ranged from zero to 10 knots. It took me nearly two and a half hours to tack around the island. The ironical part was I had packed every spare part in my backpack but forgotten to attach my up haul rope onto my boom.  Yes and I duffed my very first tack and www.aoic.org.my spent a few long minutes trying to water start.  Anyone who knows me and my phobia for anything that moves underwater beneath me knows that those minutes had a dire effect on my life.  Anyhow I managed to cut a piece of my outhaul rope on the edge of my fin. It was horribly thin rope yet it became my trusty up haul. Christiaan was about 200m ahead of me and he seemed to be catching the odd gust and making good headway. Chris and I were really battling with the situation as the wind would suddenly disappear completely and the water would turn to glass. The swell however kept on running and balancing on the board became a tightrope exercise.  I can’t remember how many tacks I did and how many times I fell off yet I was frikken exhausted. Chris and  Christiaan seemed to find a way of making their way back to Blouberg beach. Chris ended up in Melkbos and had to do some hard slogging upwind to get back to Blouberg. I was hidden behind the Island and the boyz were about to report me missing to the NSRI when Chris spotted my sail on the horizon heading home.

A great day for the Cape town Longboard Dudes yet we learnt a few basic rules which we plan to use for our next adventure, (False bay Crossing).

Confirmed, WCC in Swartriet is going to happen from 14.2.2014 till 16.2.2014
As they are not to keen on daily visitors ( neither am I, as it always comes with delays for the skippers meeting) I suggest to book your own chalet (up to 8 pax per house) at
www.swartriet.com
As this is no "Nationals" event, we invite every wave sailor who is keen to compete, to join in. ( Max of 64 riders (very unlikely but you never know:-))
Registration and i recommend information about fee will follow.
The date of the event stands, in case of no wind, there will be a team challenge of 2 surfer and 2 sup per team.
Its going to be a great happening with loads of fun, windsurf, surf, sup and braai.
So, its time to gather sponsors.
Any help is welcome. Please drop an e-mail at:
