Formula Windsurfing in the UK in 2014


Chris Bond, winter training…
The winter is drawing to an end and we should all be on a high after sailing in some of the windiest waviest conditions on record. I love my time on a wave board with only a 3.7m powering me along but I have to admit that the thought of the arrival of the new Formula season also sends my pulse racing. This short article will inform you of where and when we’re racing, where to buy affordable kit and where to get more information.
Where and when?

The UKWA will be running 5 National Championship events at 5 different coastal locations. These events are open to all sailors of all ages and all abilities – you don’t have to be a pro to come and give it a go! The only thing you’ll need is UKWA membership and your first event is FREE:

May 3 -4 Christchurch UKWA Racing National Championships Round 1
Jun 21 -22 Bridlington UKWA Racing National Championships Round 2
Jul 12 -13 Weymouth Academy UKWA Racing National Championships Round 3
Aug 23- 24 Pwllheli UKWA Racing National Championships Round 4
Oct 4 -5 Stokes Bay UKWA Racing National Championships Round 5

In addition to these, there will also an inland series consisting of 3 events and a National Championship. These events are ideal for those that want to give racing a go for the first time with the safety of being on a lake with shorter courses:
