Hey everyone, that includes active and inactive windsurfers, Wally lovers, kids and old farts
Its been a big week sorting out a few issues with the Nationals ( we have 90 competitors now and still more showing an interest),
A Devastating Fire at Windsurf n Snow (luckily no one was hurt), Wind Surf n Snow are now operating out of Windgenuity and open this weekend if you need any gear last minute before Narabeen or the Nationals. PLEASE SUPPORT ONE OF OUR SPORTS BIGGEST SUPPORTERS, SAM HAS DONATED QUITE A LOT TO OUR ASSOCIATION THIS YEAR, so, if you need any gear, now is a good time to reward him with our loyalty and condolences over this major loss of property and business interruption.
The Rippers are in Tassie competing in their Nationals and quite a few expect to come to the Windsurfer Nationals.
The Raceboard Nationals will be held at Myall Lakes starting 20th January to 23rd January. Quite a few Rippers will be competing there as well! Quite a few race boarders will bat on after 4 gruelling days of racing to join us in the Wally Nats at Toronto the very next day!
Johnsy has provided a new update and price list with some tips and tricks as well. One important one for performance will be the notes on centreboard flap trimming.
Also, one charter board still available for the Nationals. Anyway, have a read, here's the link!mailchi.mp/./nationals-update-lt-update-14-tips-tri.
i'm back at work after a few weeks off - what a shock to the system and now, at the last minute, i'd better update you all on Round 3 of the Sydney Summer evoLuTion Series!TOMMORROW - NARRABEEN LAKESWe are expecting some good seabreeze on the day which will be fantastic for pre Nationals training with the Toronto event only 12 days away!
There will be a good roll up for this as the last opportunity to sail with a large field before the National. good for practicing those start line tactics!
How to get there?
Narrabeen Lakes Sailing Club is located at Jamieson Park, The Esplanade, Narrabeen on Sydney's Northern Beaches. To get from Pittwater Road, turn West into Mactier Street and follow the road over the hill continuing through the first two roundabouts. At the third roundabout take the second exit into The Esplanade and the take the first right into Jamieson Park.there are parking meters in the park and on the nearby street however, there are a few free parking pots but you may need to walk a bit to take advantage (after you have dropped off your gear at the club first!)
Walshy is the best person to ask about free parking spots - 0466154963
