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.

Subject: Windsurfer Class NSW Summer Series Heat No. 1 of 4, Saturday 13 October, Dobroyd Aquatic Club (AKA DAC)

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.

This first heat is part of the 4 heat series that includes:

Heat 2 Balmoral Sailing Club, Sat 24 Nov 2018.
Heat 3 Narrabeen Sailing Club, Sun 13 Jan 2019.
Heat 4 Woollahra Sailing Club, Sun 3 March 2019.

Where: Dobroyd Aquatic Club, Henley Marine Dr, Rodd Point NSW.

Time: Plan to be there by 1200 hours.

Date: Saturday, 13 October 2018.

Parking: Windsurfing NSW advised parking will be free and right on the water, we may be asked to park where directed to allow maximum room so everyone fits in.

Cost: $65 for all 4 races in the Summer Series if you enter online (That's less than 17 bucks an event) or $25 cash on the day of the event.

Eligibility: Open to all Windsurfer Class members with third party insurance (this can also be purchased online)

For our racing class to thrive we need a successful and well supported Summer race series. So if you've got your board, what are you waiting for? Jump right in and enter online

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.

P.S. Don't forget to save the date for the NSW State Championships 8 and 9 December 2018 also at DAC.

Saturday turned out to be a lovely day out on the water at Balmoral, and although the breeze died somewhat and turned from the west to the south just before the first race, we still had some very close racing with a number of individual race winners.

Also great to see so many of the youth fleet there on their BIC Techno's.

Thanks to everyone especially Melanie Webb, Al Haynes and Brett Morris for the organization for another great event.

Don't forget the Windsurfer Class NSW State titles are on at DAC in two weekends time. See you all there!

Report on Heat 2 NSW Summer Series at Balmoral 24 November
Mel Webb did a fantastic job in organising not only a try windsurfing day, which linked in with the Rippers on Bic Technos, then she had 4 Windsurfer class races as part oif the Summer Series, supplied competitors with baked goods and fruit, and capped it off with a win in lightweights! GO MEL!
Big thanks also to Karen and Al Haynes for registration and scoring, and of course Brett Morris and Belly for herding and racing the Techno kids.
14 athLeTes on 14 Windsurfer LTs braved what was supposed to be a 25 knot Southerly but ended up being a 5 knot easterly which challenged a few in making it to the start on time for the first race.
Racing was tight with the fleet close together and many "races within a race" were had with competitors from all weight divisions. Notable was: John Doolan's slippery LT and smoothsole boots causing a couple of innopportune dunkings; Al Haynes muscling up at the start only to loose all breeze and cause havoc with a minute or two to go with a quick dip and sail obstacle; Steve Shimeld starting a couple of board lengths too close to the windward mark and leading the race for lap 1 only to be told "pull over sonny" by the race officer.
Lightweights went to the three Ms:1. Mel Webb, 2. Mal Rofe 3. Marty Stone
Mediums: Paul Ivshenko Dominated from John Doolan and Steve Shimeld
Heavies: Dave West over Stewie Gilbert
Super Heavies was a mammmoth tussle with Simon Jones First, Al Haynes second and XXX
Great to see some new faces Stuart and Greg mixing it up and knocking on the door.a
Special mention to Dan in his first regatta keeping everyone honest.

Balmoral action: The start may have looked casual but was super competitive Pic courtesy Of Belly.
FOR THE DIARY: Windsurfing Chrissy Drinks 21 December from 6 pm Lower Deck Bar Middle Harbour 16ft Skiff Club
Middle Harbour Skiffies, a long time supporter of Windsurfer Class is inviting all Windsurfers for a few quiet drinks and a catch up on Friday 21 December from 6pm.

Hi Everyone

At present the cost to enter the Windsurfer Nationals at Toronto (Lake Macquarie) NSW on 23 to 27 January increases by $50 after December 21, so everyone is encouraged to enter ASAP.

It is a good deal as entry covers two functions, (The Australia Day Party and Welcoming night, plus event merchandise, although merchandise may not be available to late entrants), so another reason to book early.

As of mid day 15 January there are 39 entrants already and we are hoping for lots more.

There is the potential for hire boards (Near New LT's used only in the Siam Cup) but interstate sailors get 1st preference. Need to check with Windgenuity on availability.

Time is ticking. Join in the action. NOR and online entry here:

Good morning all,

Another Saturday is almost upon us, and I hope you all had a very merry Christmas.

While I don't believe there is any official club racing tomorrow there's a number of us that will be sailing from Gosford sailing club on our Windsurfer LT's to try and get some much needed training in for the upcoming National championships in less than 4 weeks time.

It doesn't matter what board you have, we'd love to have you come and join us. The more the merrier and we ask need the practice for the huge fleet already registered for the Windsurfer nationals (85+).

The forecast is looking marginal but we might get a good NE late in the afternoon and it's going to be warm, so come spend the afternoon out on the water with us.

I hope to see you there.

Peter

Hey Windsurfers
Hope you all had a very Merry Christmas, some good times with family and friends and some time on water!

Now we're into the new year and time to get in tune for the upcoming Nationals at Toronto in 21 days!

Coming up in just over a week is heat 3 of out NSW evoLuTion Season - Sydney Summer Series!

Come along to Narabeen Lakes for an opportunity to sail with over 20 competitors already registered (with so many people registered for the Nationals we are expecting more like 30 to 40 entrants) also keen to hone their starting line tactics and fine tuning of techniques and equipment.

If you have already paid your $65 early bird Series Entry, all you need do is load up your Wally and his board (haha ?? ) and to him where to go!

If you haven't paid the $65 already, go online and pay the $65 entry fee for the final two races (your generosity always appreciated and it saves us a headache honestly) or pay $25 cash on the day

Where?
Narrabeen Lakes

When?
Sunday 13th January 2019
Be there by 11:00 ish

I will confirm more details soon

Smooth Sailing, Al, Peter, Walshy, Westy and Marty

Hi

Check on the Gosford longboard site on seabreeze with my brother John he posts as AUS817, I am pretty sure he gets his sails repaired on the Southern side of Sydney.

Re windsurfer sail repair.
I contacted Greg Johns at windgenuity and he gave me two options, Redback Sails at Brookvale and Neil Tasker at Barracouta Sails at Caringbah. I contacted Andy at Redback on 0438 111 197 as he is closer and he did a great job on a three day turnaround and cheaper than I expected. All good.

Can any one recommend a good ding repairer for my LT. I'm Sydney based northern beaches but happy to drop it off somewhere good. Somehow on its second outing it got a crack about 100mm long on the rail up the nose. It would let in water as you can suck air out. Id like a good invisible repair rather than a patch job. Thanks in advance.

Hey guys, girls, kids and old farts ,


here's some news on Narrabeen Lakes tomorrow and some updates on all the happening things in Wally World and beyond



Hey everyone,
NEWS FEED
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
The Schedule
REGISTRATIONS & SIGN ON: FROM 12:00PMSailor Weigh - In
please note, due to very dodgy scales used previously, we are doing a new weigh in for ALL competitors with new electronic scales (used at NSW State Championships so that we have a more accurate reading and accordingly accurate placement of sailors into weight divisions.
RACE BRIEFING: 1:00PM
RACING STARTS: 1:45 - 2:00PMWe are expecting 3 or 4 races to be run
AFTERWARDS, COMPLIMENTARY BBQ SAUSAGE SIZZLE FOR ALL COMPETITORS!
