'Living to race and racing to live'.

Living life in the fast lane of Speed Alley, Carter's Island, the Bermuda Triangle, and Towra Point Break.

Location: St. George Sailing Club, (02) 95294911

Where: 2 Riverside Drive, Sans Souci.

When: 2 pm Saturdays - starts September

How: Longboard, Raceboard, Formula, Hybrid,

Great to hear St George had a good turn out of Raceboard and Windsurfers. I hope you can all make it to Gosford Sailing Club on the 29th and 30th Sep (next weekend) for Heat 1 of the Summer Raceboard Series & the first Windsurfer regatta since the launch of the Windsurfer LT. Ask sailors welcome from beginner to advanced.

Hey everyone,
Just an update on the October Long weekend (29th and 30th September) racing schedule at Gosford Sailing Club.

Raceboards are having the first round of their summer series - both days. Go to the raceboards australia or windsurfing NSW website for Notification of Race and registration / payment details.

Windsurfer Originals, One Designs and LT's are invited to the Inaugural Tri Series Event as part of the Windsurfer Class Evolution Summer Series for NSW.

Go to the events tab under news in seabreeze for link to the Notice of race, registration and payment details.

There's also an informal bbq dinner organized ($20pp) after racing on Saturday evening.

No racing tomorrow at St George, Raceboards are away for the Heat 1 NSW series at Gosford. Perfect conditions for attacking the speed strip on your short board though.

Hi Paul, my hubby and I are interested in taking up windsurfing at St George. We are completely new to the sport. I have sailed and hubby has surfed, so we would like to give windsurfing a go. Can we come to the club and meet yourself and discuss getting started?

I don't think I will beat you all first go, I won't be there every saturday because I do a lot of catamaran sailing and training, that takes priority over windsurfing.

Do you know or have you spoken to Michael Watkins, a qualified windsurfing instructor at the Kurnell Cat Club ? The club ran a windsurfing regatta this year (Feb 18th) for Bics & Raceboards. In 2019 (Feb 17th) it will happen again. I believe Michael has access to Bic / Techno equipment at the club to promote learning & racing.
I've sailed that journey many, many times, but you must be sure that the winds + tides are all good to start with. It's 6.4km in just straight lines between the two clubs. It's about 10km if you are tacking or gybing between the two.
Cheers,

Hey, I used to sail Lasers out of your club in the 1990's. Pretty good crew of people and some awesome sailors.

Looks like you don't have a 16ft Skiff fleet anymore? A shame, those boats were madness on the water.

So just getting back into windsurfing, will try and come down on a race day and introduce myself, check out what you guys are getting around on.
