Formula Windsurfing in 2013
14 February 2013
Like many Formula sailors in this country, I downed tools over the winter and I'm now looking forward to the new season - I know this does not apply to all as some hardy/mad soles carry on through ice and snow in order to improve their skills.
The new season offers lots of promise for the Formula fleet with training events and international excursions all planned to run along side the UKWA series. Add to this the possibility of a trial event combining Formula and Slalom, then this should be a year to remember. The combination of the Slalom and Formula has caught the interest of Ant Baker whilst Ross Williams has hinted that he will appear at the odd UKWA event when it fits in with his international calendar - having such names at the events can only draw in more interest and up the level in our performance and overall competition.
In order to improve communication throughout the fleet the UK Formula Windsurfing group was formed on Facebook. Please feel free to join this group and hear about upcoming training, competition and a vast array of second hand kit on offer. In addition to this there is the UKWA website and our own UK Formula website For international news use formulawindsurfing.org. Any queries at all about Formula windsurfing whether it's competing or recreational then do not hesitate to contact me on Facebook or firstname.lastname@example.org Happy sailing.
