I hope this post proves popular for developments and news on our boards.
Next chance to race our boards, feedback is welcome, but the race at Dobroyd sailing club should be good, with free easy parking, well priced lunches, about 3 short races that should be fun and finish the day off with a snack and a drink on the balcony at the club watching the sunset and catching up with the the people you raced with in the afternoon.
We are hoping for 30 plus boards in our class, not sure if it is being optimistic, but if we get big numbers it will really make it fun.
Windsurfers racing at Gosford last weekend.
A few technical issues to sort out

Next weekend marks the first heat of the NSW Summer Series. We know its not quite summer but we couldn't wait to have the first Sydney race ever for Windsurfer LTs. Note One Design and Original Windsurfer boards welcome as well.
If you've just picked up a new board, what better way to get things cooking than to have a hit out on sunny Sydney Harbour.

Dobroyd always has delicious well priced lunches and the upper deck is great for a post race debrief over a cool drink as you enjoy the sunset. If the recent Gosford Windsurfer Regatta is anything to go by, then the post race camaraderie will be just as much fun as the on-water activity
If you want more info please do not hesitate to call Al Haynes Mob 0438 336 495 or Peter Doolan Mob 0468 300 299.

dont be shy if you don't have the new LT, A FEW SAILORS WILL DEFINITELY STILL BE SAILING 30 plus year old ONE DESIGNS and I can assure you they will be giving the front runners under some pressure.
