You taking part is more important than the position you get in your ‘Micro Blaster’ race.
All you have to do is a beach start or up haul from the beach, sail out to a bouy, turn around and sail back. When you get to the beach, jump off and sprint up to the finish line – simple!
Imagine the crowds cheering you on – the future Pro windsurfer!!
Under 12 years max sail 4.5m
12 to 16 years max sail 8.0m
17 years plus are invited to join the Youth class in the main fleet Master Blaster races.
There will also be loads of clinics going on during the course of the weekend, with gurus and pro-riders offering tips and advice a plenty, plus of course you’ll have the chance to cheer on the olds as they try to emulate your racing skills throughout both days, although traditionally on Sunday they seem slightly slower for some reason.
Saturday night is the floodlit action, a highlight for many. If racing out to sea in the dark, suitably adorned with glowsticks, as a tag team relay racer with your own pro-rider making up your team, then this is a ‘must do’ event …… and once you’ve done racing, it’ll be into the party with live music
If your family windsurf then this is a must enter family event, if they don’t then its a must enter event to get your family into watersports, as while you show off your pace in the race, there will be demo and taster sessions with lots of retail therapy opportunities to keep families occupied.
It’s all about fun, come to enjoy the whole weekend experience. Bring a smile and your windsurfing kit and prepare to be NWF’d.
