Irish Windsurfing Event 2015

The 2015 Irish National Windsurfing Race Event will be taking place on the weekend of 8th and 9th August, at Abbey Beach, Bantry, Co.Cork.  Come say hello!

If you can uphaul your rig comfortably, plane in a minimum of 15 knots comfortably, and attempt a gybe, then you’re good enough to be able to take part in the fun fleet of this event!  Taking part in a windsurfing event is a sure way to improve your windsurfing…you improve your gybes, tune your gear, and get more and more performance from you and your equipment.  Don’t worry about being overshadowed by past and current Irish windsurfing champions and advanced windsurfers…they’ll all be there to help you enjoy this annual windsurfing event…just ask them!

We’ll be on the slipway at Abbey Beach in Bantry, Co. Cork on both days for racing, so do come along, say hello and watch the action!  Then on Monday the 10th August, we’ll be still on the beach offering FREE instruction for intermediates and advanced riders, to coincide with the launch of the local “Blue Trail” as part of a tourism initiative.

This event is open to all windsurfers with a current 2015 Irish Windsurfing Association (IWA) membership.  Please join the IWA as not only do you get FREE insurance to take part in any Irish windsurfing event, you are also helping to support the growth of Irish Windsurfing.
