Slalom 3 - Worthing
Sat 26th - Sun 27th May
The BSA represents windsurfing in its purest form. No matter what your ability, the kit you use or the discipline you specialise in, everyone can relate to the exhilaration of blasting back and forth, trying to squeeze that extra bit of juice out of your kit whilst racing your mates.
At an event you choose a fleet to join depending on your ability, and blast around a simple course, trying to get to the finish the quickest!
At the events, there are several fleets:
- Master Blaster Fleet: Any kit, launch from the beach, get around one bouy any way you can, and get back! First back to the flag wins.
- Amatuer Fleet: The stepping-stone to the Pros, you need to be able to gybe around a 5 bouy downwind course.
- Pro Fleet: People who have plenty of competitive experience, and racing slalom within the International Rules.
If you are not a member of the UKWA you can still enter in the Master Blaster fleet, although we do have to charge an extra £10 to cover event insurance.
For the Amateur or Pro fleet you need to be a UKWA member to enter an event, then online entry is easy (see membership for more).
