We are very pleased to announce a major sponsorship by NEIL PRYDE.

The event will be known as

NEIL PRYDE BURRUM WINDFEST 2018
supported by
Sunshine Coast Boardsports and Surf FX

Our major prize this year is a NEIL PRYDE FOIL. As in previous years this will be allocated in a random draw. They have also generously donated lots of other prizes for the random draws.

With the continued support of KA 72 we will be introducing a new division - POINT TO POINT.
Two software generated imaginary lines will be drawn on the course and KA 72 will measure the fastest sailor over this distance.

More information coming.

Oxford Dictionary definition says; Change course away from the wind, "we have borne away a little to make best speed"

Sports Definitions says; Steering the board away from the wind.

Have my ticket, looking forward to another big Burrum week. Big thank you to the volunteers who make it happen, always a great event.

The new Point to Point category sounds exciting. I can imagine a fair few sailors going for that.

Hey where are the rules for this event ? can i still enter and can i still be compeditive if i only sail 1 or 2 days ? I cant find teh notice of race. I Really like the sound of the point to point it sounds like a great way to work within the limitations of safe racing and a more genuine speed sailing comp that way too.

Hi Simon

The notice of race can be found at the link below. You can come for a couple of days but we don't have any day entries - you have to pay the full entry price. The division winners are decided by the single best session over the week. it is not an aggregate score.

Look forward to seeing you here.
