Animal Poole Windfest - Slalom

19 September 2006

Sadly, not enough wind for championship racing.
However, yet again there were lots of other attractions to keep sailors amused while waiting for wind, including: Animal trials bike display team; beach volley comp; Thundercat racing; climbing wall; and new this year a wakeboard demo on the beach utilising pools built for the purpose. The windsurfing industry were out in force with indoor equipment displays, and of course, a now legendary party on saturday night!

Despite the wind not reaching championship minimums, over in the harbour Chris Lewis was able to run a series of races for Team 15'ers on Saturday.

Race officer Jan Solven managed to squeeze in one "fun slalom " series on saturday, for which the winners received some nice product prizes courtesy of ANIMAL.
